2019 Transit of Mercury

November 12, 2019

Photos from our viewing of the Mercury transit

A few lucky Physics and Astronomy faculty, staff, and graduate students got to start their day early setting up telescopes on the lawn outside of the Physics building for the 2019 transit of Mercury set to begin at 7:36 am. Mercury took it's time making it's way across the sun, around 5 1/2 hours until it passed the edge at 1:04 pm. During that time, several faculty, staff, and students stopped by to view the transit through two of our telescopes which were equipped with solar filters to block out most of the sun's light. Some where able to capture photos of the transit with their phones placed up to the eyepiece.
