Astronomical Observatory Open to observe Mercury transit across face of the Sun
November 11, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
The Astronomical Observatory of La Société Guernesiaise will be open on Monday 11 November 2019 from 1pm to 2pm to observe Mercury’s transit across the face of the Sun.
There will be talks and slide-shows, and observing through the telescopes if clear. There is no need to book; just drop in.
The Observatory is in La Rue du Lorier, St Pierre-du-Bois. Perry’s Guide reference 21 E3. Parking is usually available at La Houguette School, Rue des Paysans.
From the school, follow the signs: go 100 yards up the road, then left onto Rue du Lorier, then immediately right, behind a large bunker.
The Observatory is run by volunteer members of La Société Guernesiaise. Donations (suggest adults £2, children £1) are welcomed to assist with running costs.
