Transit of Venus – June 5

Tomorrow at 5:04 p.m., Venus will pass in front of the face of the Sun, an event that won’t happen again for another 105 years.

Do not directly look at the Sun with naked eyes. Viewers should wear special eclipse glasses or glasses with an acceptable welding glass shade. When using welders glasses, NASA recommends glass shade no. 14.

The public is welcome to participate in a viewing hosted by the Naperville Astronomical Association. The Astronomical Observatory at Wheaton College will also be open for a viewing.
