Scientists will be able to take a look from Earth at the rare event, which will not happen again until 2032, and see the closest planets of the solar system to Earth.

Mercury orbits the Sun in different paths from Earth, so the small planet's occurrence between the Earth and the Sun is a unique astronomical event.

According to NASA, "the sky will provide an excellent view on November 11, when Mercury crosses in front of the sun," where it can be seen from the Earth.

"From our point of view on Earth, we can't see Mercury and Venus intersecting in front of the sun. So it's a rare event you won't want to miss."

Almost everywhere on Earth, humans will be able to follow the tiny black spot, slowly moving through the sun's disk, but astronomers recommend using protective equipment so that the eyes do not get hurt.

Unlike crossing Venus, where the planet seems large enough to see with the naked eye, Mercury is so small that you will need binoculars or a telescope with a sun filter to see it.
