Mercury Magazine

Mercury Spring 2017 coverMercury Magazine features articles showcasing the latest developments in astronomy as well as society news and monthly sky events.

If you think corona is a beer and first contact is a sports term, and you’re planning to watch August’s solar eclipse, “Coming to Terms with Solar Eclipses” will help you recognize and understand eclipse terminology. “Solar Eclipse Eye Safety: Facts and Fallacies” is an excellent summary of when it’s safe (and not safe) to look directly at the Sun during the eclipse. Both articles are in the latest issue of Mercury.

The Spring 2017 issue of Mercury is now available to ASP members. Please log in to the ASP Member Portal to access the issue.
