      Transit of the Planet Mercury!!

      Transit of the Planet Mercury!!

      On November 11th, we have an extremely rare and special astronomical treat to wake up to; A transit of the planet Mercury.

      In progress at sunrise for Arizona, the planet Mercury will slowly move across the face of the Sun for several hours. Do you know anyone with specially engineered, filtered telescopes dedicated to viewing the Sun?  Yes, you do.

      The Apache-Sitgreaves Observatory does have two different Solar telescopes to safely view the Sun!  Each allows safe viewing of a different layer of the Sun.  Purchase your tickets to see and learn about the Sun.


      If you purchase tickets to attend, you may arrive anytime between 9:00am to 10:30am for viewing and discussion.  The transit ends at 11:00am.  Since this is a special event to safely see Mercury, your tickets are non-refundable and non-transferable.  If there are weather issues there will still be discussions and many things to learn about the Sun.

      Maps:  Do not use Google or other maps apps (they will get you lost)!  Use these Maps.

      Clothing:   PLEASE dress appropriately (bring a winter coat, hats and gloves)!

      Do your best to bring warm clothing;  your experience will be enhanced when you are dressed appropriately.  It is better to be prepared than cold!
