Live Streaming and Webcasts of the Transit of Mercury (12 November/11 November UT)

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.

On the 11th of November UT (that's 11th-12th here in Australia), Mercury will transit the sun. While more common than transits of Venus, this will be the last until 2032.

Sadly, Australia will not get to see it (we will get to see the next in 2032 though). However, there are any number of live web-casts you can follow.

While these are all at horrible times here in Australia, if you are a late stayer or an early riser, you can catch a rare event.
