Watch the Transit of Mercury on Streaming TV (tonight, May 9)

Transit of Mercury as seen from Australia in November 2006 at around 8:30am, click to enlarge. Mercury is the tiny dot roughly in the centre-top.

Tonight, May 9 2016, is a rare Transit of Mercury, where Mercury crosses the Sun's face.  We can't see it from Australia (we saw a nice one in 2006 though), but there are several sites which are live-streaming the event. Here are some courtesy of Suzy Webb. Broadcasting should start around 9:00 pm AEST (8:30 pm ACST and 7 pm AWST)
