Transit of Mercury   
Monday 11 November 2019, 12:30pm - 05:00pm

We will be observing the transit of Mercury across the face of the Sun from 12.30pm at Anglers Country Park, Wintersett, WF4 2EB.

The planet Mercury will pass across the face of the Sun starting at 12.35pm and will be able to be observed until sunset. 

We will be there with telescopes fitted with Solar filters so the Sun and Mercury can be viewed safely. Please come along and see us there.  We will also be bringing some meteorites and Aurora Planetarium will be putting on free Planetarium shows in the Green Room of the Anglers Discovery Centre.

Fancy building a telescope from scratch?

Or how about a cardboard steam engine!

Have a go at a cardboard newtonian.
