Chew On This:

On the planet Mercury the days are twice as long as the years. The planet takes 87.97 Earth days to orbit once around the sun, but rotates very slowly. This means that one year of daytime is followed by one year of night. From the surface, the sky looks butterscotch in colour because of a haze of dust.
