Transit of Mercury

There's a transit of Mercury - Mercury crossing the face of the Sun - on Monday 9th, from 11.12 UT (GMT) - 12.02 British Summer Time - until 18.42 UT - 19.42 BST, mid-point at 14.57 UT, 15.42 BST. This is too small to see with the naked eye, if you use any form of magnification you should take all precautions as for an eclipse. The icon shows a transit of Venus, which was much easier to see from Earth. The final image was unfortunately taken with the camera slightly tilted.
