Transit of Mercury 2016
Mercury Transit on May 9, 2016
This phenomenon goes unnoticed by most people. Even in the photographs it is difficult to understand what is happening.
Mercury passes in front of the sun, and sometimes we can see it from Earth. Since the size of Mercury is so small compared to the Sun, what we see is a small point that is Mercury on the surface of the sun at sunset. This is called Transit of Mercury. You have to look carefully. It’s curious.
