Arab Weather - Moroccan Initiative for Science and Thought

On Monday (11 November), Morocco will witness the phenomenon of Mercury crossing the sun .

The transit of Mercury begins at 13:35 local time, arrives in the middle at 16:19 and ends at 18:19 local time.

Crossing from Morocco and all Arab countries and wide expanses of the world except Australia and Southeast Asia, is seen continuing for about five and a half hours as Mercury appears as a black dot moving slowly across the face of the sun .

The association warns against attempting to monitor the crossing by looking directly at the sun, and it is necessary to wear glasses to monitor the sun or through projection techniques and others .

Finally, this astronomical event is very rare, occurring only 14 times in the 21st century, mostly in May and November, and the next crossing will take place on 13 November 2032.
