Transit of Venus -- great experience
Jun 2012 • Family
On June 5, 2012, I went to the Sommers-Bausch Observatory and the Fiske Planetarium next door to see the Transit of Venus. It was a wonderful experience. Members of the general public could observe the transit through the Observatory's own telescopes and through another dozen telescopes brought in by volunteers. Three generations of my family loved it.

Unfortunately, there will not be another Transit of Venus until the year 2117, but between now and then there will be plenty of astronomical occasions to visit the observatory. The staff are knowledgeable and friendly. You will have a good time.
