Transit of Venus Event

On June 5, Venus will pass directly between Earth and the Sun. This alignment is fairly rare — this is the last time it will happen until 2117! What we’ll see from Earth is a little black spot of Venus slowly make its way across the Sun’s face. Robinson Observatory and the Astronomy Society will be setting up telescopes with solar filters on the top of Parking Garage A for the public to see the event. It lasts from 6 pm to 8:15 pm. No need to come right at 6, and no need to stay for the whole event. Also, no need for RSVP. Just show up and take a look! We’ll also have eclipse glasses for your to borrow while you’re there.
