Transit of Mercury

Monday, May 9, 2016, 2:00 PM - 10:00 PM

This is the big astronomy event of 2016! Telescopes will focus on Venus rising in the east. Around 7:12am, Mercury will start its transit across the surface of the sun, which ends at 2:42pm. We’ll also search for sunspots. Then around 10am, we’ll try to catch the waxing crescent moon rising in the east. The next transit of Mercury will occur in 2019; the following in 2039 — you won’t want to miss this!

Cost: Adults: $9, Children 3-12: $7, Children 2 & Under and Penn Dixie Members: FREE
