If you take a look outside just after sunset on Tuesday night, you might be able to see Mercury with your naked eye.

The planet, which is located closest to the sun and is the smallest in our solar system, usually makes its appearance in September.

Astronomy Australia Communications Manager Romy Pearse said Mercury is currently relatively high in the twilight sky this month.

“Because of Mercury’s high eccentric orbit (meaning its orbit looks much more like an egg shape than that of a circle) and the fact that it’s so close to the Sun, we don’t often get these early evening views of Mercury,” Pearse told 7NEWS.com.au.

The planet is usually seen during the evenings in September and October and in the early mornings in March and April.

“To find Mercury, look out for a bright star near the horizon, right above where the Sun has just disappeared,” Pearse said.

“There will be another bright star in the sky in the North West, which is Arcturus.

“People may think this is Mercury, but to avoid that confusion, make sure you are looking at the bright star closest to the point where the Sun just went down, and that will be Mercury.”

For those in Sydney, the best time to see Mercury will be 6.11pm and for people in Melbourne, it’s best at 6.39pm.

“It will be visible until just before 8pm, before it dips below the horizon,” Pearse said.
