The high pressure that characterized the weather in this period allowed me to follow the evolution of the evening appearance of the planet Mercury, from February 16 to March 5, with the only interruption of February 23 because of overcast skies. In the evening there were sometimes veiling that allowed to photograph the planet and the stars in the background anyway. Mercury always sets too fast, to have the most stars to align, you have to find a compromise with the light of the sunset sky, and sometimes recording the images was very difficult. The path of the planet was recorded on the image of February 16th, and obviously did not reach that height on the horizon, this is what is achieved by registering on the stars. The stars always set before and in the meantime the days get longer ... I interrupted the work because a perturbation has arrived, and Mercury is always lower on the horizon.
