On Monday, 11 November 2019 (Veterans Day), Paula and I observed the transit of Mercury from the Big Bear Solar Observatory in Big Bear Lake, California. We joined my old friends Jay Pasachoff and Glenn Schneider. Paula took many of these photos, including all the ones of me.
Among those joining us were Claude Plymate, Telescope Engineer/Chief Observer of the observatory; Jay’s former graduate student Muzhou Lu, who currently works at SpaceX; and Jay’s nephew, Eric Kutner.
