Vardha Nicola Bennert says that:
There will be a rare Venus Transit
next week Tuesday, June 5th,
visible from SLO
between 3:06pm and sunset.
Together with the astronomy club,
we will put up our solar viewing telescopes
on the Cal Poly campus
on Dexter lawn by the library
between 3pm and ~7:30pm or so.
There will also be plenty of solar viewing glasses
to borrow (please return!).
Please remember to never look at the sun directly.
Even sunglasses are not enough,
you need special filters and solar viewing glasses.
Historically, this is a very important event
that allowed astronomers to measure the size of the solar system.
This will most likely be your last chance to see the Venus Transit in
your life time – the next one is in 2117…
