About the event
On Monday morning, Nov. 11, Mercury will pass between the sun and the earth. Weather permitting, Jewett Observatory will be open for the event. But, beforehand, this planetarium preview will describe what to expect and all the hows and whys. Please, never view the sun without appropriate eye protection.
We’ll help you sort out transits, eclipses, and occultations and review some of the past and future occurrences of these spectacular events.
