Observatory to view Mercury, Venus and Jupiter ONU's observatory will be open from 9 to 11 p.m., Friday, May 31, to view the arrangement of Mercury, Venus and Jupiter in a line above the western horizon. Jason Pinkney, professor of physics, says, "These three planets should put on quite a show in the days leading up to this event. On May 26, they will be in their most compact arrangement, fitting within a 2.5 degree wide circle. By Friday, the trio will not be so compact, but Mercury will have reached a higher altitude making it a better telescopic target. We will follow these planets using portable telescopes as they set and then focus our attention on Saturn, which continues to make a good showing in the southeast sky." In case of poor weather, check the observatory's web site for updates.
