Look to the skies! On November 11th, the planet Mercury will move to come between the Earth and the Sun - called the Mercury Transit. From 7 - 9 AM, the Big Bear Valley Astronomical Society will be posted on Standfield Cutoff (on the landbridge between Big Bear Boulevard and North Shore Drive) will telescopes to witness the event. Visitors are welcome to stop by and have a look through one of the telescopes - and it's worth considering as this phenomenon won't happen again until 2032!
