Hicks Building, 226 Hounsfield Road, Sheffield, S3 7RH
Mercury will pass in front of the Sun on 11th November 2019 and you can see this for yourself at the School of Mathematics and Statistics in central Sheffield!
The Solar Physics and Space Plasma Research Centre is setting up a live stream of our H-alpha telescopic observation in the Hicks Building foyer, where we'll also answer all your burning questions about the Sun and this rare celestial event!
Additionally, we will guide small groups of people to be able to take a look at the tiny planet as it drifts between the Sun and the Earth through a telescope.
Don't miss it - you'll have to wait over 13 years (until 13 Nov 2032) for the next Mercury transit!
