2019 Special Event – Transit of Mercury @ Eagle Lake Observatory
Nov 11 @ 8:00 am – 12:00 pm
2019 Special Event - Transit of Mercury @ Eagle Lake Observatory | Norwood Young America | Minnesota | United States

On Monday November 11th, 2019 we will be having a special event for viewing the transit of Mercury across the Sun.  The observatory opens at 8:00 am with the transit beginning before sunrise.  By 8:00 am the sun should have risen enough for viewing to begin.  There will be plenty of time to view the transit as Mercury makes its way across the sun.  The transit ends at 1:39 pm.

This star party is a ”Cancelled if Cloudy” event. Be sure to check the MAS home page and/or the MAS Discussion Forums for the latest updates if the sky looks questionable for viewing.

The next Mercury transit visible from Minnesota will not be until May 2049
