Join the Museum of the History of Science and the Hanwell Community Observatory for a rare astronomical event. The planet Mercury passes between the Earth and Sun about a dozen times every century, appearing as a dot crossing its surface. Don’t miss your chance to observe the next transit of Mercury in the open surroundings of the University Parks – and hope for fine weather!
Drop-in. Suitable for all the family.
