Presented by Keith Davis

On the morning of November 11, Mercury will seem to pass across the surface of the Sun. This is a transit, a special kind of conjunction in which an object moves in front of another. Conjunction, alignment, and occultation are all real astronomical terms, but what do they mean? Join Dr. Keith Davis at the Digital Visualization Theater to learn how the solar system moves, what to call the positions of the planets, and why they move around in the first place.
