People in Greece will be able to witness a rare celestial show on Monday as Mercury passes between the sun and Earth, a phenomenon that is not expected to occur again until 2032.
The transit of Mercury is expected to be spotted in Greece shortly after 2.30 p.m. and will last for around five hours, according to experts.
Turks and expatriate Brits both braved freezing water on Dec. 26 to benefit the stray animals of Turkey as mercury drops.
Two persons have been arrested on suspicion that they brought mercury (quicksilver) to Serbia, where they stored the chemical element with intent to sell it.
The Interior Ministry (MUP) made the announcement on Thursday.
