Joe Knows: Catch Mercury pass between Earth and Sun for 1st time in decade

NH1.com

It only happens a little more than once a decade, but on Monday, you will be able to see mercury pass between the earth and sun.

The rare astronomical event is known as a planetary transit where mercury zooms around the sun often but the earth, sun, and mercury rarely align.

Mercury will look like a tiny black dot as it glides in front of the sun.

The entire trip will take about seven and a half hours and will happen Monday at 7 a.m. - 12 p.m.

You will need a telescope or binoculars to see.
