Mercury passing in front of the sun from our viewpoint on November 11th is a huge highlight this year in astronomy. We won’t see this again until 2032. Check out this 14 second (5 1/2 hours in real time) time lapse of the event.

My photo of the from this morning. Mercury is the *tiny* speck in the center of the disc of the Sun. For planet size comparison the second image is of the transit of Venus in 2012 (there were many sunspots at that time).
