Merkurtransit November 11th, 2019
November 11th, 2019 after noontime it was after 2016 again the case of a so called Merkurtransit: planet Merkury is positioned between the sun and earth and can be seen as a small black dot before sun. As Merkury is so small it can be seen by a telescope only; a special filter is necessary as the sun is too bright not to damage the eyes. Compared to 2016, this time the weather was bad and cloudy, no free sight to the sun in Steyr. So you had to observe the case via internet from the observatory on mountain Pico del Teide, Canary Islands. The pictures above are from Solar Scope, Canary Islands and their copyright. On the second picture you can see the the view from Solar Scope and the moon is rising in the background.
