Mercury transit incoming 11th Nov 2019
« on: August 12, 2019, 07:06:03 AM »
Dear flatearthers. Since FE model doesn't seem able to predict planetary transits, I thought it would be nice to share this information: The next Mercury transit is just 3 months away! It will take place on November 11th. 

On this day it will be possible to watch planet Mercury passing between the earth and the sun as RE predicts. The transit will be  visible in full in South America and US East coast. The rest of America, Africa and Europe will get a good view as well. Australians and Chinese are out of luck, they won't see any of it.

Next mercury transit after this one will take place in 2032! Do not waste this opportunity to make some zetetic observations and draw your conclusions of where Mercury could be.

Please don't stare directly at the sun without the proper filters!

The Venus transits were way better, but none of those for a while too.
I wonder if the FE people know the transits were used to measure the earth's distance to the sun, in the past.
