Rare micro-solar eclipse to be seen on Monday



During a so-called "Mercury Transit" – assuming good weather conditions – a rare micro-solar eclipse was seen on Monday. The planet Mercury passes through the sun in the afternoon. Since the sky is relatively small and far from the ground, you can see it as a black dot in front of the solar disk only on telescopes, which must be protected by special filters.

The play begins in Vienna at 13.35. For hours, the small black disk of the smallest planet in the solar system then moves throughout the day. About halfway through the day shift is setting at 16.22. For observation, a clear view of the southwest is required. A Mercury transit takes place only 1

3 to 14 times a century. The last time he was seen in 2016, the next such sky spectacle took place again in 2032.
