On Monday May 9th 2016 one of the rarest astronomical events: a transit of Mercury across the face of the sun.
Because Mercury and Venus are closer to the sun than Earth is, the two planets occasionally pass between Earth and the sun, performing something called a solar transit. This happens less than twice a century with Venus, and 13 or 14 times a century with Mercury.
