Forums Mercury Transit of Mercury Features on solar disc

David Swan

I am pleased to hear you observed the transit, Philip. The weather over the UK is not settled at the moment! My basic set-up was not up to showing the more subtle features on the solar disc, but I’m sure we’ll see drawings and images filtering through over the next few days that corroborate your obs. There certainly has been a dearth of sunspot activity in the past weeks! I just had to focus on the edge of the disc and hope for the best.
