This composite photo was taken from room #2674 at the Sahara in Las Vegas. It was taken March 25th with a Sony DSC-S50. There are two combined exposures of about a half second. I used photoshop for a little fine tuning. I was surprised how well I could see Mercury this night considering how low it was. At top is Venus, theres a plane at left and Mercury is near the horizon at right.
