International Observe the Moon Night is a worldwide celebration of our nearest neighbour in Space. On this day NASA has invited everyone on Earth to observe and learn about the Moon together. As well as viewing the Moon through our telescope we will have some activities.

On Monday 11 November the planet Mercury will pass over the face of the Sun which is a fairly rare occurrence. With a solar filter on our telescope we can observe the Sun safely and watch Mercury’s progress.
