I caught this wonderful post-sunset sky from the Antrim Mountains at 1841 UT on March 5th 2005. The tiny bright dot three-quarters up, slightly left of centre is in fact Mercury. For those with local knowledge, the mountain peak in the bottom centre is Slemish.

Camera was Minolta F100 4MP digital compact on tripod 1/15th sec @ f4.5 ISO 200, cropped and adjusted in Adobe Photoshop Elements 2.
