Transit of Venus at Kopernik Observatory – June 5th

You do not want to miss this extremely rare astronomical event. See Venus move across the side of the sun. Although, this happened in 2004, it will not happen again until 2117! If clear, we will have a multitude of telescopes with solar filters to safely observe this event.
Warning: Never look directly at the sun with a telescope
