Transit of Mercury

Transit of Mercury on November 11

Next Monday, Novermber 11, the planet Mercury will pass in front of the sun, beginning at about 7:30 a.m. and lasting until just after 1 p.m. This will not happen again until 2032!

LVAAS has arranged for a viewing opportunity at the Da Vinci Science Center, outside the main building on the east side (which is to the left as you come in the main entrance from the parking lot.) We are planning to have members there with solar telescopes for the entire event. Stop by and take a look, and then check out the fascinating exhibits that Da Vinci Science Center has to offer!

The weather forecast is "partially sunny." We will be there, to take advantage of the sunny parts!
