Abstract
Glavni cilj ovog završnog rada bio je popratiti tranzit Merkura koji se dogodio 9. svibnja 2016. godine, uočiti sve važne položaje, odnosno kontakte, Merkura na Sunčevom disku te pripadajuća vremena zabilježiti u obliku teksta i fotografije. Prilikom izvođenja promatranja, korišteni su osnovni instrumenti u astronomiji: teleskop, okulari i filteri. Promatranje je održano u dvorištu Odjela za fiziku, Sveučilišta Josipa Jurja Strossmayera u Osijeku, a njemu su mogli prisustvovati svi zainteresirani studenti. Rad je koncipiran u dvije glavne cjeline. U prvom će dijelu biti opisane osnovne karakteristike Merkura. Objasniti će se iznimna važnost pojave tranzita Merkura prilikom njegova proučavanja. U dugom dijelu rada, biti će opisan postupak izvođenja promatranja i navedena vremena s pripadajućim fotografijama kontaktnih točaka na Sunčevom disku.

Parallel abstract (English)
The main goal of this final thesis is to observe transit of Mercury that occurred on 9 May 2016, noted all important positions, or contacts, of Mercury on the solar disk and the associated time record in the form of text and photos. During the observation, basic instrumnets in astronomy, such as telescope, eyepieces and filters, were used. The observation was held in the yard of Department of Physics, University of Josip Juraj Strossmayer and it was open to attend to all interested students. The work is divided into two main parts. In the first part, the features of Mercury and the importance of Mercury transit for researching this planet will be explained. In the second part, a method of performing observation will be described and the time with corresponding photographs of contact points on the solar disk will be indicated.
