If you’re intrigued by the beauty of the heavenly bodies, you might want to be at Tobiassen Park in Nevada City on Nov. 8, between 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

The Imaginarium science museum will set up four telescopes at the park that day for people to watch planet Mercury make a rare transition, Operations Manager Helena Heinzelman said.

The event is free to the public and will be hosted by Wayne Watson, a local amateur astronomer with the Imaginarium.
