Description

I took this photo with my Pentax K-50 with HD Digital Ultraviolet Filter 52 mm and caught a surprised glimpse of Mercury as the light bent during the total solar eclipse. At first I thought I had a glare, but as I zoomed in to inspect the image better, I can absolutely see the sphere of the planet. We have multiple shots showing the movement of the planet/sun/moon. The sky shows the light being blocked as the moon crosses the sun -- one side of the sky has light and the other is dark.
