Transit of Mercury with UK Astronomy

Monday 11th November 2019 from 12:30pm to 16:00pm

Campbell Park Pavilion - Milton Keynes

1300 Silbury Boulevard, Milton Keynes, MK9 4AD


Join the team from UK Astronomy and witness this (relatively) rare astronomical event that occurs barely a handful of times during a human's lifetime! Using telescopes which filter the harmful rays of the Sun you'll be able to observe the Solar System's innermost planet pass in front of our closest star, an event known as a "transit". The event is free of charge! Just turn up!
