Transit of mercury - 9.5.2016 at 16.04 Kauhava Observation number 52601

Visibility IV / V

Jari Kankaanpää, Lakeuden Ursa

Like a tiny iron pepper over a cosmic orange.

Mercury slid slowly in a completely cloudless sky over the sun. Only the initial 45 minutes and the remaining 30 minutes remained unrecorded. The material accumulated in a gig trade to be collected in a rainy-day cart.
