Mercury Transit on 11-11, 2019
Category: Cosmic Events
On November 11, we will see the planet Mercury move in front of the Sun for the first time since 2016, and the last time until 2032!
Monday, November 11, 4:35 a.m. to 10:04 a.m. PST
Daytime (when the Sun is visible in the sky)
Viewers nearly everywhere on Earth will be able to see a tiny dark spot moving slowly across the disk of the Sun. Because Mercury is so small from our perspective on Earth, you'll need binoculars or a telescope with a Sun filter to see it. Note that, in terms of safety, all solar eclipse viewing tips and resources also apply to Mercury Transit viewing. The only difference is the magnification needed to effectively view the small Mercury transit. It's difficult to notice Mercury without at least binoculars or a telescope using the proper safety methods.
*CAUTION: Looking at the Sun directly or through a telescope without proper protection can lead to serious and permanent vision damage. Do not look directly at the Sun without a solar filter.
