Mercury and the crescent moon

Tom Clabough, one of the Central Park star guys, sent me notice of this event. If you miss it tonight, tomorrow [March 1] is also good, but probably the last day.

MERCURY & THE MOON: Have you been watching Mercury in the evening sky lately? Tonight it has a beautiful companion: a super-thin crescent moon. Look for the pair just above the western horizon at sunset.
