A super rare event is about to happen in space that we won't see again until 2019

On Monday, May 9 most people on Earth will see planet Mercury trace its way across the face of the sun. This is called the Mercury transit and it only happens about 13 times a century. We won’t see another transit until 2019 so don’t miss your chance to catch this rare celestial event.
