Mercury transit now in progress!

If you don’t have a largish telescope and proper solar filtration, or even if you do, you can get a great live view courtesy of NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center:

GSFC: 2016 Mercury Transit

That link carries imagery from NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory, which has a nearly uninterrupted view of the Sun from a sun-synchronous orbit around the Earth.  Transit will be going on for a few more hours, and then I believe that site will carry recorded views.
