Mercury Rising Road Show

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 Wellington Astronomical Society, get a chance to safely look at the sun through a solar telescope.

Doors open at 5.30, talk starts at 6.

More information on the Mercury Rising Project website.

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