You may have heard about the solar eclipse that happened recently (on May 20th), the mere mention of which caused one of us editors to break into “Total Eclipse of the Heart” each time. Can you guess who?
Maybe you even got some special glasses and looked at it yourself. Well, if you missed it, you’ve still got a chance to catch the transit of Venus. Happening tomorrow (or the next day, depending on where you are).
So for those of us in North America, keep it in mind for tomorrow in the early evening! And if you’ve still got your special spectacles, you better whip them out. We did! And we’ll be watching tomorrow.
Now if you’re not interested in such things, you may want to think twice about the transit of Venus because guess what? This will never happen again in our lifetimes since the next one will occur in 2117! This is your last chance of seeing Venus directly between us and the sun!
And if you’re all about this, you might want to check out our sibling publication Sky and Telescope magazine!
Thanks for checking in, and check back with us at noon, because we’ll be giving you details on how to vote for Gallery Idol, round 2!
