The severe thunderstorms also produced high winds and baseball size hail. Five counties were declared disaster areas by President Carter.

The bow of the crescent, which points to the sun's position below the horizon, is nearly parallel to the horizon creating the mouth of the smile. ~t , Imagination is necessary for the eyes. The steep angle of the ecliptic, the plane of the Eardi's orbit projected into stm~, also affects the positions ~- of the planets to the horizon causing their orbits to be inclined to the landscape at a steep angle. Currently, the most elusive of the naked eye ~- ' planets, Mercury, is benefiting from this conditiorL Dmfng the past several weeks, the Messenger God, moving in a counterclockwise direction, ..m~ ~ a(omld the back of the sun, becoming visible in the western sky about 45 minutes after sundowrL On April Fools Day it reaches its greatest eastern ,~llt~" |[elongaaon which.for this apparition is a measly !9 degrees from tbe sun. Meretay can be as far away as 28 degrees from Sol, so at this elongation, we are viewing ....... || Mercmy when it is near to its closest distance from the sun. Nineteen degrees is not a large angle to be positioned away from the sun,- but when that distance is on ]| an orbital path that is Upped about 70 degrees to the honzon, it is distant enough to. be easily seen after sundown. In addition, the Earth's rotation will take nearly ]| 90 minutes before Mercury sets providing enough time to view the smallest planet in a nearly dark sky. You'll need a good western horizon. Be at your observing ]1 location about 40 minutes afmr sundown. Mercmy will still be at a enmfurtable altitude of 10 degreus; that is equivalent to a fist held at arm's length, thumb on top, 1| bottom of the fast on the horizon. Use binoculars to scan the m'ea above the horizon which has the greatest glow. tf you pick up a starlike object, it will be Mercmy. U However, during this week Mercmy starts sliding back towards the sun, mad its brighmess decreases by about three times. Much success!
