View Mercury crossing the Sun

Join members of the Black Hills Astronomical Society at The Journey Museum and Learning Center to safely view the transit of Mercury across the Sun.  Weather permitting, Mercury will be viewable as a black dot crossing the bright disk of the sun. 

Meet on Monday, November 11 from 10-11 a.m. in the parking lot north of The Journey Museum and Learning Center.

Please note, it is EXTREMELY DANGEROUS to look at the Sun unless you use eclipse glasses, a welder's mask or a properly filtered telescope. The apparent size of Mercury will be too small for visual observation without a telescope.

Free - all programs sponsored by the Black Hills Astronomical Society are free and open to the public.

Monday, November 11 at 10:00am to 11:00am
