Eyes to the sky: Transit of Venus

posted Jun 4, 2012, 12:33 PM by Anthony Pisano
From planet Earth, it is a rare event to view a transit of Venus, when the planet Venus can be seen moving across the face of the sun. On Tuesday, there will be a transit of Venus, and the Morris Museum Astronomical Society invites the public to view it, weather permitting, with a 5:30 p.m. talk; the transit takes place from about 6 p.m. and visible until sunset at 8:27 p.m. This outdoor event is free, and experts from the society will be on hand to explain the event and to provide safe means of viewing the event.
