There’s a special astronomical event on the horizon: the Transit of Mercury! On November 11, Mercury will be crossing the face of the Sun as seen on Earth.
At this free event, speak with Adler astronomers and volunteers about the transit and enjoy telescope observing through solar-filtered telescopes. You won’t want to miss this—the next Transit of Mercury won’t be visible in Chicago until 2049!
Please note: This event is weather permitting and will be taking place right outside of the Adler’s Doane Observatory.
