Join the Physics Department in the viewing of the transit of Mercury from 7:30 a.m.-1:00 p.m., Monday, November 11th, in the Rickey Science Center. From this perspective on Earth, Mercury will be seen passing across the disk of the Sun. A display in the first-floor lobby of the Rickey Science Center will show the transit as viewed from NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory. Come find out how this event relates to the search for exoplanets. Weather-permitting, a solar telescope will also be set up near the building for safe viewing of the transit.
