This is nice but the Higgs boson isn't confirmed yet. CERN found one boson. They still have to figure out which boson.

"As February unfolds, Mercury will rise higher in the sunset sky, brightening as it ascends.  From February 11th through 21st, the "pink planet" will be visible for as much as an hour after sunset.  February 11th is a date of special interest: a slender crescent Moon will appear straight above Mercury"
