So the Mercury transit of the sun is coming up in about a month. It starts at sunrise around here and lasts 2-3hours. I was going to try and get some pictures of it assuming I can get out that day. Typically it is rainy that time of year on the westside, and I'm thinking to head to the eastern side of the state.

It's not as interesting as a solar eclipse, but I think it will be fun to see and try and grab a picture.

Any of you also going to try and capture this rare event?

Note: you need solar film to protect your eyes/camera ...just like an eclipse.

I have it on my calendar for the 12th early AM for a partial transit, was hoping for a weather window to see a little back dot on the sun that day
