For my location, the next Mercury transit visible will be 07-May, 2049. Ouch :) I am glad I was able to see the entire 5.5 hour celestial show yesterday, even with cirrus clouds passing by. Later near 1200 EST, much blue sky appeared too and that made for some really great views of the last 60 minutes of the Mercury transit with my telescope.
