Transit of MercuryJoin Stan State's Dr. Brian Morsony to view the transit of Mercury across the sun, the first such transit since 2016. The passage of a planet across the face of the Sun is considered a relatively rare occurrence with only about 13 transits of Mercury occurring each century. The next one will be in 2032!

The viewing will take place at and around the observatory dome in the bio-ag area adjacent to the Naraghi Hall of Science.
