CELESTIAL SHOW - May 9th, 2016
The phenomenon called the Transit of Mercury had many earthlings pretty excited. The 7.5-hour transit was in view for the first time since 2006 on May 9, 2016. The transit was not only rare but it also provided an opportunity to see Mercury easily.
The planet Mercury is normally difficult to see because it is so little but when it passes in front of the sun, it creates a silhouette, making it a lot easier to spot.
Salwanians joined the other astronomy lovers at Vigyan Prasar, Noida to have an exceptional view of the transit. Such transits of Mercury happen only 13 times in the century and not all of them are visible from all parts of the world.
