Seeing Mercury in Transit

By Jessie Forand/ECHO

Joshua Benes, a research technician for the UVM Rubenstein SchoolUniversity of Vermont, set up camp in Hoehl Park on May 9, 2016, to watch as Mercury made a rare transit around the sun. The planet makes this move just 13 times per century, Benes said.
With a picnic blanket laid out, offering cake to the about 20 curious passersby who stopped to inquire, Benes gazed into his telescope every few minutes, patiently waiting in between looks for clouds to pass.

Benes began his dive into the astronomy world in 2003, when he got his telescope and witnessed the transit of Venus in 2004. When Venus made the journey again in 2012, he organized a watch event.
Seeing these incredible sights puts the size of the universe into perspective, Benes said, and gets him thinking about the larger makeup of the solar system.
