The Exploratorium’s Live@ crew will be at the Kitt Peak National Observatory, and, with the Kitt Peak staff, will Webcast the transit: a live five-hour telescope-only feed beginning at 11:00 am PST.
The transit will take place from 11:12 a.m. PST until 4:10 p.m. PST and will be visible from the Pacific, the Americas, eastern Asia, Australia, and New Zealand, although some locations will not be able to see the entire transit.

The planet Mercury has just finished up a very poor apparition in which it is has dawdled low in the western evening sky for the past few weeks. It has now disappeared into the bright evening twilight, but by later in November, in contrast to its recent poor evening performance, it will be readily visible as an increasingly bright starlike object low in the eastern sky around the break of dawn.
Mercury is also scheduled to make a most unusual — albeit brief — appearance on Wednesday.
