Comment:  Another red planet, or maybe an exoplanet?  No, it's a nebula.  1080 circular cutouts of the nebula (each shifted by 2 pixels) were spherized, tilted 23 degrees, and placed in a timeline.  The background is a montage of many of my imaged objects.  Minor artistic liberties were taken in the making of this video.
Comment:   Mercury is the dark spot on the left side of the solar disk.  The sky was partly cloudy.  This video shows a jet contrail drifting through.  Too bad the jet itself didn't make a transit.
