Mark your calendars! On May 9, 2016 there will be a Transit of Mercury - that's when the tiny planet Mercury will come directly between us and the Sun. This rare and subtle event is visible only 13 or 14 times each century, and I want you to see it all.

Supermoon Lover

Neil deGrasse Tyson is wrong. It pains me to write it but the world-famous astrophysicist, Director of the Hayden Planetarium in New York City and superstar of our field is a Supermoon hater.
