2019 Transit of Mercury

We are only just over a month from a major astronomical event - the Transit of Mercury, where the innermost planet appears to 'move' across the face of the Sun.

This will take place on Monday 11th November and from the UK it will only be visible in the late afternoon and the Sun will set whilst Mercury is still in transit.

More details can be found here...... http://www.eclipsewise.com/oh/tm2019.html

Please note that to view Mercury as it crosses the Sun, you must use high quality filtration of sunlight to avoid eye damage. This also applies to any photographic efforts too.

If you miss this one the next ToM will be 13th November 2032!.
