over Crescentino (VC) Italy, the Dec.23 Mercury was invisible in
daylight and the December 24 the same; The Dec.24 Mercury was only
visible after the sunset just over the trees, without details in
a very bad seeing.
This morning Dec.27 in the Northern Italy the sky was blue and
steady (seeing II-III Ant.)
Mercury was visible in daylight with some interesting albedo
features (with W21 filter).
A large bright area was visible (approx.) between -20 and -40 lat.
and between 300 to 340 long. Another large clear area was
visible (approx.) around +20 lat. and 20long.

Kind regards
Ciao e cieli sereni
