Planet Mercury is usually hidden in glare of the sun or appears very close to the horizon at dusk or dawn. In this image of a 2-day old crescent moon, Mercury is captured during its greatest elongation (furthest from the sun as seen in the Earth sky) in the evening sky above Hungary. Tamas Ladanyi/
