Wow! Viewing the ‪#‎MercuryTransit‬ today with Wilton-Lyndeborough Cooperative Middle School, Cape Cod Academy, and of course, the FSU community was incredible! We compared the size of Mercury to one large sunspot that was visible and watched the tiny dot crawl slowly across the disk of the Sun. The whole thing was over by about 1:20PM.
