Venus Transit (June 5)

Posted by Observatory

The observatory will open for the transit of Venus over the sun on June 5. This is the last chance to see this rare event until 2117. We have several telescopes that are safe to point at the Sun and through which you can follow the transit. The transit starts at 5:04PM and is no longer visible after sunset (8:27PM). We will be open the entire time, weather permitting. Please check back for more information later.
