When one is looking up why limit the view to just leaves, birds and clouds? I guess that has been my motto pretty much since childhood, and this Tueday we'll all get a historic opportunity to enjoy the last Transit of Venus until 2117.
For us in North America the evening of June 5 is when we'll want to pop the popcorn for the big show. The weather looks favorable Tuesday, but if it clouds up or you can't safely observe the Transit properly don't fear: NASA EDGE will be hosting a live webcast from Mauna Kea, Hawaii.
The Transit of Venus is one of those singular events where many people on Earth can share in the wonder of the heavens. So let's all get out there....or up there. Oh, you know what I mean.....go Venus, go!
