Transit of Venus
Don’t miss the only opportunity in your lifetime to see Venus pass in front of the sun. The transit begins at about 4:10 p.m. this afternoon and continues until sunset at about 8:34 p.m.
Do not look at the sun without a safe solar filter. Permanent eye damage could result. Use a safe solar filter, like a No. 14 welder’s glass, or project a telescopic image of the sun onto a white card for an enlarged image. You can watch the event safely live online at http://sunearthda…
