Celebrates the Transit of Mercury

The next Transit of Mercury will not take place until 11 November 2019 so this was a golden opportunity to see an event so rare ...

In my new program for May 'The music of the spheres' we take a look at how to observe the transit safely and what to look for with  Prof. Lucy Green (The Society for Popular Astronomy).

Then we look back at the Greek philosophers & famous astronomers who helped piece together the order of the Solar System we know today.
