Join us at the Ontario Science Centre for our monthly Solar Observing on the TELUSCAPE observing pad. This is the area in front of the Science Centre's entrance. We use specialized telescopes that are safe to aim at the Sun.
Here on earth, we can only see two planets pass between us and the Sun - and it doesn't happen every day! The last time we saw Mercury appear to glide across the face of the Sun was in 2006. The next time it happens is 2019.
