Unfortunately due to bad weather conditions and dense fog we had to cancel our planned public viewing event at our local Johannes Kepler observatory. So we could only offer some online- live-views from the Transit of Mercury to the few people who came despite fog to our observatory.

So some people of our association decided to go outside of the city up to the hills and mountains in the surroundings of Linz to try to catch this event.

And indeed above the fog there was a real chance to get some images of this rare event - following some pictures.merkurtransit 2019 1
