One of the biggest astronomy events of the year will take place at the start of next week. It’s an event so rare that it won’t happen again until 2032.

On Monday, Nov. 11, people across North America, South America, Europe, Africa and western Asia will be able to see Mercury pass directly between the Earth and the sun in an astronomical alignment known as a transit.

Transits happen only a few times per century and provide a unique opportunity to see a planet glide across the face of the sun.
