The first planet will able to be seen today as it travels in front of the sun.
Mercury will traverse across the sun for more than 5 hours and it's the last time it will happen until 2032, The Washington Post reported.
It may be hard to see without special glasses that will protect your eyes, and a large telescope, but you can still see the black speck as it makes its journey before ending around 1:04 p.m. EST.
Mercury is tiny compared to the sun and using only binoculars could cause permanent and irreversible eye damage.
Space.com said binoculars need to have correct solar protection, or better yet, link up with an astronomy club or event to take part in the viewing.
If that isn't an option, how can you safely watch the sky show?
