November 11, 2019, ALLENTOWN-ROBBINSVILLE, NJ – This morning about 7:35 a.m. Eastern Standard Time the planet Mercury started it’s transit across the sun. In a rare event, the transit is where the planet crosses in front of the sun and can be seen from planet Earth. The next time this can be seen from planet Earth will be in 2032. The transit will be complete today around 1:04 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. If you have proper equipment you can see this yourself from just about anywhere in the United States and beyond.
Do not look directly at the sun you won’t be able to see it without some magnification and certified eye protection. Use proper equipment for viewing the sun such as certified eclipse glasses and special filters for cameras and telescopes. I tried looking though eclipse glasses that I had from left over from the eclipse a few years ago and could not see it. Using the camera with a special coated filter with 600mm magnification equivalent I was able to capture images of this event. If you do not use proper equipment you will suffer eye damage and damage to your photographic equipment.at Buy CBD Online – CBD Oil, Gummies, Vapes. Use coupon code dennis during checkout.
