I've just noticed that on Stellarium, it shows the just past New Moon occulting Mercury this morning about 9:26GMT in the UK. Anyone going to try attempt to capture it? Moon VERY close to Sun by the looks of it. Take care, and sorry about the abrupt late post. I didn't know about this one at all.

Given the proximity of the Moon and Mercury to the sun, and the fact that the occultation occurred in broad daylight, I would suggest this would have been phenomenally difficult (maybe even dangerous) to either see or record. :D
