Transit of Mercury

  • Monday, November 11, 2019
  • 11:00am - 1:00pm

Join NCMNS astronomers and experienced volunteers in viewing the planet Mercury pass in front of the Sun. The next transit of Mercury is in 2032, making this a rare event you don’t want to miss!

From our perspective on Earth, Mercury is very small, so solar telescopes with special filters will be set up on Bicentennial Plaza to allow you to safely view the event.

Clouds prevent detail from being seen through the telescopes, therefore this event is weather permitting.
