Cambridge Observatory - Institute of Astronomy
University of Cambridge, Cambridge, CB3 0HA
In collaboration with the Cambridge Astronomical Association and the Cambridge University Astronomical Society the Institute of Astronomy will be staging an afternoon of observing to try to catch the planet Mercury in the act of transiting across the face of the Sun. This will be an all-afternoon event, so feel free to drop in any time. This is a fairly uncommon happening, and the next chance to see it will be in 2032! So if you are interested, do come along.
Please note that this event has already taken place on 11/11/2019
