Transit overcast - 11.11.2019 at 14.35 - 11.11.2019 at 16.05 Ulvila Observation number 86465

Visibility Unclassified

We gathered with a small group at the Ulvila observatory to try to detect Mercury's overrun, defying the probabilities. However, the threat was futile because the weather elf had already decided otherwise and that most likely scenario materialized. Throughout the crossing, the sky was almost completely gray and cloudy and light snow was obtained. It was only just before the onset of the overflow that the sun briefly glanced a little at the gap in the cloud, but by the beginning of the overflow the sun was already firmly behind a flat cloud curtain. However, we drank overflow coffees and watched the overflow live on Youtube.

Juha Ojanperä, Hannu Määttänen and Vesa Puistovaara from the association are present.
