Astro Biz: Blue Mercury

Blue Mercury PortlandMany businesses, products, and places have names rooted in space and astronomy. We’re featuring one every Tuesday on Seattle Astronomy.

This week’s Astro Biz is Blue Mercury. The company has a chain of makeup and skincare stores and spas around the country. There’s one at University Village in Seattle, but we first spotted Blue Mercury on a recent visit to Portland, Oregon.

We selected Blue Mercury this week because we’re getting pumped for Monday’s transit of Mercury. There’s some reason to be optimistic; a current forecast of “partly cloudy” for the day makes us think we’ll have a good shot at a glimpse of the transit. We’ll be watching the forecast over the coming days.
