Mercury moving across the sun

A Door County organization will be helping you watch an astronomical phenomenon happening next week. On November 11th the planet Mercury will be able to be seen in its orbit crossing over the sun. Since it’s dangerous to look directly at the sun, the Door Peninsula Astronomical Society will have a special telescope camera pointed at the sun and you can view it safely at the Stonecipher Astronomy Center or through an online feed. Dave Lenius, a member of the board on the Door Peninsula Astronomical Society, shares why he thinks this is such an awe-inspiring event.

 

 

The Mercury Transit will start at sunrise and it will take about 5 ½ hours to cross the sun. NightSkiesNetwork.com is where the Door Peninsula Astronomical Society will be streaming the Mercury Transit. The name of the channel there is “DPAS.”
