Transit of Mercury Viewing Party at the Greensboro Science Center/ November 8, 2019
On Monday, November 11, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., the Greensboro Astronomy Club and Greensboro Science Center (GSC) are teaming up for a Transit of Mercury Viewing Party. The event will take place in front of the Greensboro Science Center’s main entrance and is free for all to attend. Admission to the Greensboro Science Center is not included with this free event; however, general admission tickets may be purchased for those who choose to visit the GSC on this day. During the event, Greensboro Astronomy Club members will set up telescopes outfitted with solar filters so guests can safely watch the transit of Mercury across the sun.

In the event of weather interference, activities will take place in the GSC’s Science Advancement through Innovative Learning (SAIL) Center.
