Enjoy a visit to the Battle of Britain Bunker and see the transit of Mercury with West of London Astronomical Society outreach officer Stewart Coulter. It’s a fantastic opportunity to combine observing a rare astronomical event with a visit to the bunker on Armistice Day. The transit will be observable (weather permitting) from 12:35 until around 15:00 at which time conveniently there will be a tour of the venue starting if you’d like to pre-book by calling 01895 230276.
