Venus Transit

Venus is making it’s “last” transit across the sun starting at 6pm EDT. Get yourself to the nearest observatory and check it out. OR!!! If you just so happen to have solar protective spectacles, check it out from your home.

More Info: BU Astronomy Dept.

Note: Obviously, Venus will continue to orbit the sun, but we, on Earth, won’t be able to see it. When I said “last,”  I meant last in our life time. The next transit happens in year 2117. I, and you also, probably, will not be alive to see that.
