Join Lindsay Wildlife Experience and the Mount Diablo Astronomical Society for a rare opportunity to view the morning Transit of Mercury!

Available at the viewing will be approved special filters and solar scopes to observe and view the dark disk of Mercury moving across the face of the Sun.  This special viewing is a continued partnership with Lindsay and the Mount Diablo Astronomical Society, which has its monthly meetings at the wildlife center.

This event can only be observed with PROPER SOLAR FILTERS on binoculars or telescopes.  DO NOT look at the Sun without commercial solar filters.
