Many 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.
