Transit of Mercury

Dates to book for your diary:
  • 9 May 2016: Transit of Mercury
  • 2 August 2027: Solar eclipse "Solar eclipses are one of the great natural wonders and one can usually be seen somewhere on Earth each year. But the one in 2027 will be exceptionally long with a maximum duration of six minutes and 23 seconds. It will pass through the Straits of Gibraltar then across the North African coast before dipping down to Yemen and Somalia."
Time to book accomodation in Gibralta before the astronomical price rise (Ithangyou).
