LunchBox Animation Reel


Mercury Crossing the Sun


Grant Hiestand

13 to 14 times each century, Mercury crosses the face of the Sun as seen from Earth.

This video shows a rare grazing transit of Mercury as shot on November 15, 1999 at 1:12 PM. It will not be repeated until sometime in the 23rd century.

This animation compresses the transit from 58 minutes to 9 seconds, using the timelapse function in the Video LunchBox.
