Uranus October 13, 2012 taken using a Canon 450D DSLR with 50 mm prime lens, ISO 1600, 6 sec exposure (non-tracking), Cavite, Philippines.

Mercury is a relatively bright planet easily visible to the naked eye, but because of its close proximity to the Sun, it is often lost in the Sun’s glare. During sunrise and sunset, however, the region close to the Sun may be thoroughly searched without the blinding glare, making the task of finding the planet much easier. This image was taken on March 1, 2015 using a Canon 450D DSLR with 18-55 mm lens set at 18 mm, f/3.5, ISO 1600, 10 sec exposure, from Kiltepan Peak in Sagada, Mountain Province, Philippines. Mercury is the bright object closest to the horizon on the lower right part of the image. Photo Credit: Anthony Urbano
