See the Transit of Mercury at James Island County Park

Join the Lowcountry Stargazers for a rare daytime astronomy event! While it's not unique, it isn't very often that Mercury crosses the face of the Sun. Weather permitting, we will be set up at James Island County Park in the meadow with solar telescopes and other equipment to safely view the sun.

Though the transit starts at 6:12am, our event begins around 8am, when the park opens, and runs until about 2pm, when the transit is over. (There is a small entrance fee for the park.)

Come join us for this rare daytime astronomy event!
