> Dear Adrian,

> I was given your email by Paul Streeter, who I understand spoke to the OU Astronomy Club last night. I am writing to inform you that I am organising an OU event for staff at the Walton Hall campus to observe the transit of Mercury that is occurring on Monday next week (11th).

> I just wanted to extend an invitation to OU Astronomy Club members to observe the transit. If it I sunny, the Coronado and the two Skywatchers from the Abell Observatory will be deployed on the Mulberry Lawn in front of the Hub from 1200 until sunset. There will also be several solar viewers available. In addition, there will be some short talks about Mercury in the Hub Lecture Theatre as the transit progresses. Between talks, there will be a projection of the livestream of the transit captured by NASA's SDO orbiting telescope.

> Could you please distribute this invitation to your members? If any of them would like to attend the telescopes and solar viewers as 'experts', I would be very grateful to hear from them. Do not hesitate to pass my contact details along to anybody who would like to volunteer to help or anyone who requires further information.

> Many thanks,

> Jack
