Transit of Mercury Viewing Event! CANCELLED!

11/10/19 Update:

EVENT CANCELLED! Thanks for all the interest! Unfortunately, we’re going to have a transit of the Syracuse Nebula (a local astronomy term for clouds) tomorrow which will block our view of anything outside of our atmosphere! If you’re still interested in watching the event from the warmth and comfort of your chosen location you can go straight to NASA and watch a live stream of the event and you can read up on related news at the same time. Thanks again for your interest. Look here again for upcoming events. If you want to learn more please visit our website at
