Mercury to be visible today

Ever seen the smallest planet in our solar system? Today you’ll have a chance.

Mercury will be visible from 6:12 a.m. to 1:42 p.m. as a black dot passing across the sun, WAFB reports. If you can’t take a break to go outside and see the spectacle, you can also view it on the NASA website.

The event, during which Mercury will make a transverse around the sun, won’t happen again until 2019.
