2016 Transit of Mercury
(Monday 9th May 2016)

Mercury was transit the Sun for the first time since 2006.
The transit or passage of a planet across the face of the Sun
is a relatively rare occurrence.

First location that saw the full transit
begin at 11.13am.

Milton Keynes Deaf Astronomical Society met on the backyard of Milton Keynes
Monday to witness a rare astronomical event, where it passes between Earth and the Sun.
