Transit of Mercury

Terry Lee Wells Discovery Museum

Transit of Mercury

Approximately 13 times each century, Mercury passes between the Earth and the Sun aligned so that the disc of the planet can be seen through a telescope crossing the Sun. On November 11, 2019 in Reno, the Sun will rise with the transit already in progress. Join our friends from Tahoe Star Tours to view the transit through computerized Celestron telescopes. The next transit visible from Reno won’t happen until 2049!

Note: The viewing will take place outside The Discovery. The museum will not be open to the public.
