I recorded Mercury moving between Earth and our sun today. It was an accident. I was looking for UFOs and there it was, a big black dot. Kinda amazing how its so close to the sun and still remains so dark. I thought it would light up its surface more along its edges, but it gave us nothing. Still, its a beautiful sight.
