The Lima Astronomical Society will hold an event to view the Mercury Transit across the Sun beginning at 7 a.m. Monday, Nov. 11, in the Schoonover Observatory, 670 N. Jefferson St., Lima. The next opportunity to behold Mercury transiting the sun will be on November 13, 2034.
Because Mercury is so small and far away from Earth, a telescope with a proper Sun filter is required to safely see it.
Those looking towards the sun on Monday may notice a tiny black disc moving across the glowing orb in a rare celestial event.
This event will be the fourth of 14 transits of Mercury that will occur during the 21st century. A telescope with a solar filter will make it possible for people to witness the transit. The passage of a planet across the face of the Sun is called a planetary transit.
Mercury is the smallest world in our solar system (in case you settle that Pluto isn't a genuine planet) and is handiest neutral a slight of larger than Earth's moon. Hence, a telescope that could magnify with at least 50 power will be needed to see it.
"Transits are a visible demonstration of how the planets move around the sun, and everyone with access to the right equipment should take a look, or go to an organised event if the weather is clear, or alternatively follow one of the live webcasts".
You may also be remembering the transit of Venus, a much rarer phenomenon. Have you ever seen the planet Mercury during the daytime?
Transits are predominant in astronomy which capability of they enable astronomers to detect planets orbiting alien stars.
Astronomy club members will have telescopes with special solar filters on hand to allow safe viewing of the event.
Ordinarily, Mercury is hard to observe, as it rises and sets close to the sun. Pacific Time. However, even those on the US West Coast will have to wait for the sun to rise to view it.
Do not forget to put a solar filter on it before viewing. Workshops will be available on Nov. 25 and 26 from 9 a.m.to noon, as well as extended public hours on Wednesday, Nov. 27 from 10 a.m.to 5 p.m. Registration begins Monday, Nov. 11.
