(WTNH) — A rare event is going to take place Monday morning. Mercury will transit the Sun.
The event will begin about 7:35a.m. The full path across the Sun will take about 5.5 hours.
The event only happens about 13 times every 100 years.
Though Mercury is the closest planet to the Sun, it will look like a teeny, tiny black dot on the Sun.
A public viewing event is being held at the Leitner Family Observatory and Planetarium from 10am-noon. Click here for more information.
