     Look up in the sky! It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s…Mercury? Join us at the Delaware Museum of Natural History as we and the Delaware Astronomical Society watch Mercury move between the Earth and the Sun. With telescopes, guests can observe the dark disk of Mercury moving across Earth’s view of the sun. This transit won't occur again until 2039, so mark your calendars for November 11 and don’t spend the next 20 years wishing you came to this event!

    Free for DMNH Members or with paid admission to the museum.
