If there's something I kwnow about mercury is that one of its sides always points to the sun while the other always points to the oposite direction, an due to that, the temperature on the bright side is about 167 C and on the dark side is -270 C , what makes of mercury one of the most extreme enviroments on our solar sistem, I think.
That remembers me that I've never been able to spot mercury on the sky... has any of you been able to do it?
