Transit of Mercury

This photo is taken by one of dh's partners who is an amateur astronomer.  The small (pin tip size) black spot at the middle/bottom right is Mercury.  The larger black spot on the far right is a sun spot.  There are also two smaller sun spots along the edge on the left. 


Even though it's a pain, I'm going to keep this photo big for a little bit so you can actually see Mercury.  On the smaller size you couldn't really see the pin point.  I'll change it back to normal in a couple of days.

That really shows you how big the sun is.
