Join the Crystal Coast Stargazers at the Ft. Macon Visitor Center for a special daytime astronomy program.  The planet Mercury will be in “Transit” or between the Earth and the Sun. This is a somewhat rare event and will not happen again until 2032. We will have telescopes with special solar filters set up for safe viewing of this event and any other solar features that may be visible.
