A mercury transit is a rare natural sight. If you missed today's event, you will not be able to catch it until 2032. Only then will the planet closest to the sun, Mercury, be exactly between Earth and Sun
However, the observation of the transit of Mercury, which expires between 13:35 and 19:05, is not so easy. Those who still have glasses eclipse at home – without the right to look in the sun – can use them, but they will hardly see the little planet. You need a specially equipped telescope.
Under no circumstances should you look through binoculars without a special filter for the sun – immediate blindness may result. These streams of life offered by different organizations are much safer. They allow the observation of the transit of Mercury safe for the eyes. Have fun!
