This is a great post for monday, with one exception, it has a mistake.
Can you spot the mistake?
Happy Monday with a lot of coffee.

I can't be sure, but in trying to look this up, I get different answers.  Some sites show that a "day" on Mercury lasts about 59 Earth days, making the graphic correct.  Other sites list the Mercury day as over 4200 hours, or about 176 Earth days.  
Either some of the sites are wrong or the length of time that it takes Mercury is variable.  Seeing how a year on Mercury is just 88 Earth days, I don't know how that could be possible, but Mercury is an odd place.

Hope someone posts the answer.

EDIT:  I found it.  
The time it takes for the Sun to reach the highest point in the sky two consecutive times on Mercury (the solar day) is 176 Earth days whereas a sidereal day on Mercury with respect to the stars is 59 Earth days.

(Sidereal is how long it takes the planet to make one full rotation)
