Mercury to travel across the face of the Sun on Monday

On Monday morning, Mercury will make a pass in front of the sun. The rare celestial event occurs once in 13 years. The event begins at 7:35 a.m. (EST) Monday, and will last five and a half hours, according to NASA. However, the dance between the two bodies will be so disproportionate that stargazers will need special tools, such as a telescope with a safety filter, to catch a glimpse.
