Special Day, Monday, November 11, 2019 | Space | The planets have aligned to make this Curiosity Day an out of this world experience. We will begin early with a chance to view a rare Mercury transit of the sun (next occurring in our area in 2049). Inside, learn more about our solar system, investigate how scientists are finding planets outside our solar system, and imagine the life that might be there.
