Transit of Mercury

Date/Time

Assuming clear weather, views of the planet Mercury crossing the face of the Sun will be shown in the Abbitt Observatory and possibly other locations around the Museum.  If possible, a live feed from the observatory will be established in the main building.  If weather goes against us, we will attempt to have a live feed from NASA of the transit available in the main building.

The transit or passage of a planet across the face of the Sun is a relatively rare occurrence. There are approximately 13 transits of Mercury each century; the last one was in 2006.

Included in museum admission.
