While preparing on Sunday to watch today’s transit – an event Mercury crosses the face of our sun – Helio C. Vital caught an airplane doing the same.
Helio C. Vital in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, wrote late Sunday night:
Brazil will be in the front row to watch the whole transit of Mercury on Monday.
This photo shows the sun less than 16 hours before Mercury starts to pass in front of our vital star. To make things even more exciting, as I was filming the sun in preparation for Monday’s rare event, a plane just happened to transit it, like Mercury will be doing. How nice!
