Transit of Mercury Occurring November 11

Our solar system's smallest [official] planet, Mercury, will be traveling between Earth and the Sun on November 11, 2019, providing us photographers an excellent opportunity to once again drag out those solar filters we acquired for the full solar eclipse of 2017. The complete transit will be visible from South America and the eastern United States, but a partial transit will be visible from every part of the continental US as well as Europe and Africa.

If you don't have a solar filter, now might be a good time to get one as, in addition to the Mercury transit, there will be another full solar eclipse visible to much of North America on April 8, 2024.
