LOOK at the picture below: What do you think those two dots are above and below the eclipse?

Robert and Elisabeth Slobins of Laredo, Texas, captured one of the most talked about highlights of totality: Mercury (top) and Jupiter accompanying the
Sun. 1998 Robert B. Slobins/Phototake.

Late last month (September 24 and 25) an interesting gathering of the Moon, Jupiter and Mercury occurred.    On the above photo, Jupiter is the bright dot to the lower right of the crescent Moon, and Mercury is the faint speck basking in the morning twilight, directly below the Moon but much closer to the horizon. Note that on this photo, the time exposure brightens the earthshine, making the Moon appear full.
