Mercury transiting the Sun 11-11-19

Not to be seen again from North America until 2032, planet Mercury is passing between Earth and the Sun this morning – see the tiny black spot above and right of center?  Not a naked-eye event!  A filter is required to stop  potentially harmful solar radiation, (note my setup).

70-200mm @ 200, f/13 ISO 200, 1/8,000th sec w/solar filter
