Cressing Temple Barns

Cressing, Braintree, CM77 8PD


Join the astronomers from North Essex Astronomical Society who will be at Cressing Temple Barns to observe the Transit of Mercury. This rare event won’t be seen from Earth again until 2032! Mercury will look like an extremely small dot as it crosses the Sun and you will need telescopes or binoculars with protective solar filters to see it.
