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!
Please note that this event has already taken place on 11/11/2019
