Mercury - Astronomy

Post by Maxim Trevelyan »

Mercury is the smallest planet in our solar system and nearest to the Sun. Despite its proximity to the Sun, Mercury is not the hottest planet in our solar system, a title that belongs to Venus. It has no moons or rings. Mercury takes 59 Earth days to make one full daily rotation and completes one revolution around the Sun in around 88 Earth days.

These whole long days and short years have people thrown in for a loop. To help them out with the time and space continuum, design a Mercury calendar page or day planner. Remember that the days are far longer than we are used to. You could even look up holidays or crucial dates and see which of them would fall on the same day on Mercury.

Post your graphics below (keep it 600x600 or less) by February 28th 11:59 pm HOL time to get 30 Hoots and 50 beans.

I do it because I can. I do it because I want to. I do it because you said I couldn't.
Thank you to the wonderful Professor Tarma for my fabulous sig!
