Mercury Transit from Colorado


Recommended Posts

I took my scope over to the park to have a nice wide open space for viewing.  The transit had already begun by the time the sun rose here, and at sunrise we had a cloud bank to the east.  However, by about 8:30am the clouds broke and it was mostly clear skies for the remaining 2.5 hours of the transit.  I got some wonderful views, including a really bright flare.  A great time was had, and a couple of people stopped by to share the view with me.  I took a few photos with my phone that are not of the highest quality, but they are representative of my views.  What a cool event!  Hope a lot of you got to catch your own views too!
