Mercury is transiting across the face of the sun on 12 November. This transit is special as it marks almost exactly 250 years to the day since Captain James Cook and the Endeavour crew witnessed the same phenomenon at Mercury Bay, and it won't occur again for another 13 years!

Join us in the Perpetual Guardian Planetarium the evening before this celestial milestone to find out more about transits, eclipses, and our unique position in the solar system.

If you’d like to see the eclipse on the morning of 12 November, you can join the Dunedin Astronomical Society on the Otago Peninsula, where they will be setting up special solar viewing equipment.

Weather permitting, the transit will be visible between 6am and 7am. If you would like more information about this event, or safe solar viewing, please contact -

This event is approximately one hour.

Adult $15, Child $10 Admittance to planetarium restricted to ages three years and older.
Limited numbers, bookings essential.

Tickets are available from the Museum shop, or online.
