Transit of Mercury

Transit of Mercury

  • 10000 Skyline Blvd., Oakland, CA 94619
  • Neighborhood: Montclair Village/Oakland Hills


The next Transit of Mercury won’t take place until 2032, so don’t miss out on this incredible sight!

Join us at Chabot for this rare event, in which we see Mercury crossing directly in front of the Sun! This will be an exciting early morning event beginning at sunrise. During a transit, Mercury appears as a tiny black dot moving across the disk of the Sun. Weather permitting, the Mercury Transit can be viewed through our telescopes as well as provided sun spotters. Coffee and pastries will be available for purchase.

Limited capacity. Pre-registration is recommended.
