Tomorrow morning, May 9, Mercury will transit the face of the sun. Living near Seattle, the weather forecast is not promising, but I did just catch a break in the clouds and got my solar equipment dialed in. Sunspots are sparse right now. This is how the sun looked today at 10:20 p.m. UTC over Port Orchard, Washington. Tomorrow, I hope to photograph the Mercury transit. At least I'm prepared.
