The best place to watch Mercury pass across the face of the sun is on top of the parking garage.
So, before school or work on Monday, May 9 at 7 AM, we’re meeting for breakfast and a brilliant cosmic event: the transit of Mercury.
With help from Astronomy Associates of Lawrence, we’ll cheer as the little black dot makes its passage visible for the last time until 2019.
Drop in any time between 7 AM and 2:30 PM, but early birds will be treated to delicious Starbucks Coffee and Einstein Bros Bagels – Mass Street at 7 AM!
