Upcoming 2019 Events:

Next Event:  Nov 11 - Transit of Mercury

Join us to view the Mercury Transit outside the store! We will watch through solar telescopes as Mercury moves across the disc of the Sun. The transit itself begins before sunrise, we expect the Sun to clear the buildings at about 7:AM, and the transit continues through 11:04 AM.

You are also welcome to bring your own telescope to setup in the parking lot!
The store will be open during the transit from 7:00 AM - 11:30 AM. In the event of cloudy weather, we will have the transit live stream on our large screen in the store.

Free Coffee and pastries provided!
