Transit of Venus

Don’t forget to catch the Transit of Venus tomorrow (June 5) if you can.  The next one won’t be until 2117.  NASA will be broadcasting it live from Mauna Kea, Hawaii here.  It will start around 6PM US east coast time and end about 7 hours later so only those in the Pacific will catch all of it.  Check your local science museum, planetarium or university astronomy department for information on where telescopes will be available to see it.   Venus will be a tiny dot moving slowly across the face of the sun.
