Mercury and Venus are the only two planets between the Earth and the Sun, so they can transit the Sun, when viewed from the Earth. In this picture we see Mercury in the border of the Sun disc as a small round black spot. It is not a sunspot, but the dark face of Mercury crossing side by side the great solar disc. In this image we can also see a sunspot at upper left side. Mercury has a quite small apparent diameter because it is further than Venus and it is also smaller in size.

The image was taken using a Nikon CoolPix 880 camera through a 10-inch Schmidt-Cassegrain Meade telescope and a Thousand Oaks Type 2+ Solar Filter. It was taken from Monterrey, Mexico by José E. García Batarse, an astronomer that belongs to "Kosmos Scientific de México".

Very nice instructional video, props to Mr. Smith. However, unsels you just happen to have some stuff laying around to work with I don't recommend building a panel. The prices of professional panels has dropped enough that it doesn't really make sense. I got a 100 watt panel off Ebay for $200 that is fully sealed with aluminum frame, junction box etc (Ramson) I am going to build a small panel but that's only because I have some solar cells already laying around and don't want to waste them.

you're too sweet you need to find a rich guy to take care of you next time I see you you'll be in a BMW! LOL I like women I can take care of and protect, bascuee of the cancer venus, aqua n.node, birth path 6 I always default back to do that for others I like a person who can make me want to be a better person, and also one that doesn't judge and will show me different perspectives to open my eyes leos love someone who can make us feel loved and appreciated who also shows their support for us Not many leos I know have their dreams recognized or are shown support by the people they love so it is a large thing we look for Just loyalty and support.,..we in turn will look at the person inside over their appearance most of the time leos have no problem dating good looking people, but we won't settle for someone/thing fake like a capricorn would for a trophy wife etc i APPROACH them by flirting, teasing, sarcasm, and being honest/blunt with them I have no problem telling someone I like them it is harder to do if the other person isn't giving me any signs or they are being too defensive, I suggest you try and open up a little around him and flirt back not to mention it doesn't hurt to tell him how you feel or at least give some compliments hinting that you may be interested in him lol.
