Nov 8th Mercury Transit

A treat for all astronomers on the the 8th of November 2006. The planet Mercury will be able to be seen transiting the face of our star, the sun.

If you have a telescope with proper solar filters (never look at the sun with your naked eyes, or with a telescope or binoculars with proper solar filters) you will be able to see this event take place over 5 hours.

Starting at 12:12PM MST Mercury will be visible against the sun’s surface. If the weather stays clear I will try and get some pictures to post on my site so stay tuned!
