Mercury to Transit the Sun
Monday, November 11, 7:34 am to 1:05 pm
Join Professor Dave Huestis on the patio outside Bello to watch the planet Mercury pass between the Earth and the Sun. Telescopes with special solar filters will be provided to allow safe viewing of this infrequent astronomical event (only 12-13 of these occur per century).
Please note: rain/clouds will cancel this observing session.
To prepare yourself for this experience, please read the Transit of Mercury article in the October 31 issue of The Archway.
Set aside a few minutes of your time to view one of the many unique astronomical wonders of the heavens.
