    Dear all planetary observers -
     I thought you would like to see this.

     At below, you will see two animations of Mercury. The one on the left 
was from the last September morning apparition and the one on the right is from 
this morning apparition. Note the big difference of the albedo features. You 
are looking at the hemisphere of complete opposite side from each other.  North 
is at top and east is at left.
