Time: 7:00 AM until 9:00 AM

Join the Tacoma Astronomical Society and observe the planet Mercury as it passes between the Earth and the Sun!  TAS will be working with the students and faculty of Pierce College Ft. Steilacoom to provide an opportunity to participate in this unique experience!

There are inside and outside events, so plan on joining us rain or shine!  Keep an eye on our Facebook page for up to the minute details.

TAS will provide several telescopes and projection tools to help you view this event safetly!  Remember!  You are looking towards the Sun so you need to take the same precautions as you did during the eclipse!
