Mercury transit 9. May - three short talks and a live telescope view

Föredrag
The next Mercury transits are 11. November 2019 and 13. November 2032. They will be unlikely to be observed from Sweden since November months are typically cloudy. Furthermore, the Sun will be low on the sky in November, which causes disturbances of the view because of atmospheric turbulences. The next Mercury transit after this one with favourable viewing conditions is in May 2049. So take this opportunity to get a full view of the transit! Public visitors are welcome to join the event from the beginning, or to come for a look through the telescope between 13:15 and 15:00.

12:30-12:35 Welcome (Anders Johansen)
12:35-12:45 Introduction to the Mercury transit (Lennart Lindegren)
12:45-12:55 How to observe the Sun (Daniel Michalik)
12:55-13:05 Exoplanet transit research (Anders Johansen)
13:05-13:15 Live video broadcast (Daniel Michalik and Dainis Dravins; transit starts at 13:12)
