Celestial Messenger

Transit of Mercury across the sun, observed through the telescope on the rooftop observation deck at Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science in Downtown Miami.

Mercury put on a rare celestial show, parading across the sun in view of most of the world. Stargazers used solar-filtered binoculars and telescopes to spot Mercury — a tiny black dot — as it passed directly between Earth and the sun.

Mercury’s next transit isn’t until 2032, and North America won’t get another viewing opportunity until 2049.
