Just a heads-up to anyone who would like to witness this event, the upcoming transit will be the last until 2032. I saw the 1999 transit and the purity of the blackness and roundness of Mercury against the Sun's disc is something to see. Now, I'm left to hoping that weather will permit me to view it.

That's great! It's a fun event. I placed my transit closeup next to the best pictures I've taken of Mercury and it was fun to see how big it appears compared to other situations. Too bad that (comparatively) large disk is all black instead of showing the day side.
