We hope to be observing the Transit of Mercury on 11 Nov 2019 on Calton Hill, WEATHER PERMITTING. The transit starts at 12:35 and continues after the Sun sets (16:13).

We will have our Solar telescopes with us and you are welcome to come along and have a look. The weather forecast is not great however, so keep an eye on our Facebook page and Twitter feed for more up to date information.

Transits of Mercury are quite rare (not as rare as Venus!) and the next transit will not be until 2032 so always worth catching them when you can.
