Wonder More: Transit of Mercury

On Monday, May 9th, there will be a fairly rare astronomical event: a transit of Mercury across the sun! ‪#‎WonderMore‬

The Dal Department of Physics and Atmospheric Science will have telescopes set up at the Sir James Dunn building from 8AM until 4PM so you can safely view it. We cannot stress the “safely” part enough: DO NOT LOOK DIRECTLY AT THE SUN.

Look for more details and other sites on the Astronomy Nova Scotia website.
