Next week, on Monday, May 9, skywatchers on Earth will be able to see Mercury make its way across the surface of the sun. The so-called transit of Mercury occurs only about 13 times every century, and the next one won't take place until 2019.
Come by the Science Center to see it for yourself! You will need special equipment to see it for yourself, which will be provided for you. We will have telescopes set up from 9:00 a.m. to noon. There will also be a TJC astronomy professor here that will explain what is happening as well as answer questions that you may have. Best of all it is completely free for everyone!!! If you have any questions feel free to give us a call at 903-510-2312.
