The smallest planet mercury in our solar system completed the transit of the sun last year. Now he will be able to come only so close to the sun in 2032. During this astronomical event, Mercury, seen as a black micro-point on the aura of the sun, moved away from the solar disc due to the 5.5-hour magnetic stretch. Telescopes and special spectacles were used by scientists and students worldwide to observe this astronomical phenomenon. As such, the diameter of Mercury is about 1406.74 km (874 mi) larger in size than the diameter of our Moon. But being located far away from the Earth, when it passed in front of the sun, it hid only a small part of the sunlight. This is the biggest difference between an eclipse and transit.
This transit of Mercury occurs 13 times per century. The next transit will take place on November 13, 2032. Mercury transit usually occurs only in May or November. Because during this time the Earth aligns in the orbit of Mercury. Earlier in 2004 and 2012, Earth has also transit with Venus. The next transit of Venus will no longer be before 2117.
