Have you ever watched Venus pass in front of the sun?

The Venus transit occurs this afternoon and several venues in the area are having viewing parties.The Northern Colorado Astronomical Society will host a viewing party in Fort Collins from 3:30 p.m. until dusk at the Fossil Creek Reservoir parking lot on East County Road 32.

In Denver, the Gates Planetarium will allow safe solar telescope viewing beginning at 5:30 p.m. The planetarium is located inside the Denver Museum of Nature and Science at 2001 Colorado Blvd.

Take in this Venus transit in front of the Sun because the next on will not occur until December of 2117.
