Astronomical event viewing

Tomorrow the planet Mercury will pass between us and the sun, though it’s not something you’ll be able to view with the naked eye. You could go look at a larger version of the photo to the right or you could head to the King Street Parking Garage at Montgomery College in Silver Spring. They’ll have equipment there for both fair weather (ie, not cloudy) and foul. If you’d rather not lever yourself out of your easy chair I suppose you could always watch the Exploratorium’s webcast…

    I love celestial events, and that’s not far from my place at all. Unfortunately, the forecast calls for more rain tomorrow.

    Even if the weather is crap it might be worth going if you’re close by – their remove viewing setup will apparently be a projection system of some sort, which might be more fun than looking at it on your own screen.
