A dozen astronomers gathered on the bank of the South Saskatchewan River in Saskatoon on Monday morning to witness a cosmic event that only takes place 13 times a century.
“We’re here to see the world’s smallest eclipse of the sun, it’s called the Mercury transit,” said Tim Yaworski, a member of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada.
“The planet Mercury right now is passing between us and the sun and, for a very rare moment, we have a chance to actually see it.”
