Blewett Featured in Mercury Transit "Hawaiian Style" Webcast
On the morning of November 8, the planet Mercury will pass directly in front of the sun. This rare event, called a "transit," will start at 9:12 a.m. HST and last about five hours. University of Hawaii astronomers will use special telescopes at the summits of Haleakala and Mauna Kea to transmit live images of the transit over the Internet as a "Mercury Transit Hawaiian Style" webcast.
