Transit of Mercury
Volunteers needed for this momentous event. Ed Mizzi is looking for help with this great Outreach opportunity, so let’s get straight to the details.
* Date: Monday, May 9, 2016 Times: 07:13 – 14.41 Classes begin at 09:00
* Location: Canadian Martyrs’ Elementary School, Burlington, ON.
* Audience: Students from grades 5 to 8 and their teachers, plus any passersby.
* Ed will have 2 of the club’s Dobs, with Solar Filters (thanks to Gary Bennett), at the site, but we could use more telescopes. Ed will be there all day, if necessary.
* The students will have already been briefed about the event but be prepared with a short description of what is happening and its significance (links below).
* Volunteers are not, of course, expected to stay for the entire event. Even an hour of your time would be appreciated.
* Parking is available. Please see link below.
* Please contact Ed.Mizzi, via the Forum or directly at firstname.lastname@example.org, if you are interested in helping. Thanks
