During the first part of January, Mercury is a morning "star" as seen about an hour before sunrise.
(Star background is correct for January 8th.)
Due to its short 88 Earth day year, Mercury makes four appearances in the morning skies...
...and two appearances in the evening skies during 1998. (Illustrations for +40° latitude.)
