Astronomical Event

The planet Mercury will move directly between the Earth and the Sun. Viewers with telescopes and approved solar filters will be able to observe the dark disk of the planet Mercury moving across the face of the Sun. This is an extremely rare event that occurs only once every few years.

The Sun will rise with the transit already in progress. The Transit will end at 11:38 PDT
