During this event, the UVI mobile planetarium will be set up at the UVI library, and physics faculty and students will be on hand to discuss the nature of planetary transits and how such events are related to the search for planets around stars outside the Solar System.
The planet will look like a tiny, moving black dot on the sun's face as it passes in front of the sun, Urrutia wrote.
Solar transits happens less than twice a century with Venus, and 13 or 14 times a century with Mercury. Transits of Mercury only happen about 13 times per century. Hence, a telescope that could magnify with at least 50 power will be needed to see it. Seattle often misses remarkable celestial events at this time of year due to cloud cover, but in this case, the National Weather Service says we may have clear skies. However, the first few hours of this transit occurs before sunrise in California, so Mercury will not be visible in our area until around 8 AM.
The next transit of Mercury is in November 2032, but the next one visible from OH will be in May 2049.
Nasa has offered its own advice on observing the transit of Mercury.

Dr. Jawed Iqbal, Director ISPA to PRO, Karachi University said in a statement that this rare event won't be seen from Earth again until 2032. According to NASA, spectators need to see binoculars or telescope with a Sun filter to witness the phenomenon as Mercury is so small from our perspective on Earth.
The transit begins at 6:36 a.m. and ends at 12:04 p.m. Wearing solar filters, such as solar eclipse glasses and looking into the eyepiece of a telescope that is fit on a screen of its own, can still lead to irreversible eye damage.
Do not forget to put a solar filter on it before viewing.
