Solar Transit of Mercury 8th November
Anyone remember the last time Mercury crossed the Sun? It was on 7th May 2003. Several CAS members set up telescopes and watched the show from the Memorial Gardens in Cockermouth (This is one of my images from the event) Well it happens again tomorrow. It starts after sunset from here unfortunately but you can watch it live on the internet from the Kitt Peak observatory in the US from 19:00 to just after midnight our time.
(Or if they are clouded out you can always try here in Japan where it will happen during their morning!)
