Mercury Rising – Expert Speaker Roadshow

Image removed.

Come join us for our national speaker roadshow leading up to the transit of Mercury across the sun!

Hear astronomy-based talks from Dr Rangi Matamua, Dr Nicholas Rattenbury, Dr Karen Pollard, and Dr Emma Bunce and, with help from the Otago Museum science communicators, get a chance to safely look at the sun through a solar telescope.

Cathedral doors open at 5.30, talk starts at 6.
See more information on the Mercury Rising Project website.

This event is part of the Tuia – Encounters 250 programme.
