Space fact: the planet Mercury sometimes has TWO sunrises!
On Mercury’s double sunrises:
Mercury possesses the most eccentric orbit of any planet. It rotates on its axis three times for every two revolutions it makes around the Sun. But when it arrives at perihelion (its closest to the Sun) Mercury’s orbital velocity will exceed its rotational speed. As a consequence, a hypothetical observer standing on Mercury would see a sight unique in our entire solar system. Over the course of eight days (fours days before perihelion to four days after perihelion), the Sun would appear to reverse its course across the sky, then double back and resume its normal track across the sky.
If our observer were located on that part of Mercury where the Sun were to rise around the time of perihelion, the Sun would appear to partially come up above the eastern horizon, pause and then drop back below the horizon, followed in rapid succession by a second sunrise!
