From the article: 

On Monday, November 11, 2019, our solar system’s smallest and innermost planet will transit across the disk of the Sun, as seen from Earth, for the first time since 2016, and here in the Asheville, North Carolina region, with clear skies, the entire 5½ hour event will be visible.  This Mercury transit may be thought of as a special type of partial (very partial) eclipse of the Sun by a planet!
