According to local Astronomer Jay Reynolds, Mercury is the fastest-changing planet because of how quickly it moves around the Sun. Mercury takes 88 “Earth days” to travel one revolution around the sun. So, its position in the sky changes very rapidly.
Reynolds says Mercury is beginning to descend in our sky, but the odds are people will not locate the planet. Seeing Mercury is tough!
According to NASA, “Retrograde motion” happens when Earth comes up from behind and overtakes another planet. While we’re passing by Mercury, it will look to us as though it is moving in a strange direction.
Then, as we move farther along our curved orbit and see the planet from a different angle, the illusion will disappear and we will once again see Mercury move in a straight line.
This apparent erratic movement is called “retrograde motion.” The illusion also happens with Jupiter and the other planets that orbit farther from the sun.
