Episode 116: The Transit of Mercury, with Suzanna Nagy

For more info on the podcast, please see our About page.

Feature Guest: Suzanna Nagy

suzannaSuzanna Nagy is President of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada’s Vancouver Centre. In May 2016 she took advantage of a rare and unusual aerial phenomena – a clear sky in downtown Vancouver – to share the wonders of our solar system with hundreds of people. The event was the transit of planet Mercury in front of the sun. In case you missed it, we’re going to have Suzanna joining us here at The Star Spot to describe her experience and to explain to us how astronomy educators use these naturally occurring marvels to provide others with a way into the world of astronomy.
