Transit of Mercury
There will be a transit of Mercury on November 11, 2019.
Many of you may have seen the Transits of Venus and certainly the last Transit of Mercury which was became a bit cloudy in Delaware at the end. This eclipse should thrill everyone who likes watching a slow motion lunar eclipse will love this 5 and a half hours transit.
In Delaware this entire even from start to end will be fully observable (weather permitting). The good news is that it is cloudy 61% of the time on this day.
The current (as of April 25th) table gives transit information for Philadelphia rather than Dover.
All times are local. Times are 24hr, altitudes are degrees. Table was produced by “2019 Transit of Mercury” by Fred Espanak from the Observers Handbook 2019, and http://www.eclipsewise.com/oh/oh-tables/tm2019-Tab03.pdf
