Astronomical Bummer

After the fantastic experience of the partial eclipse I was really looking forward to the transit of Venus.  Alas, clouds are in our future.  Which is hard because New Mexico needs the rain so desperately, but I really wanted to see this event since I’m not going to make the next one.

I’m trying to figure out if I could drive far enough west to get out from under the cloud cover.  Probably not and still do all the things I’m supposed to do today.  Like vote in the primary, and write and ride.

I may just chuck being responsible and head toward Gallup.  But I better check the radar first.

    Try living in England. We have more chance of witnessing the Second Coming than the transit of Venus.

    This was on the UNCG website, which I only nteciod after reading about it on your blog:Physics and Astronomy hosts Venus transit viewing June 5 –UNCG’s Department of Physics and Astronomy is offering a front-row seat to a once-in-a-lifetime event: the planet Venus passing between the Earth and the sun.Weather permitting, the transit will be visible in the Triad Tuesday, June 5, from around 6 p.m. until roughly sunset. This event only occurs twice in about 110 years. The next transit of Venus will occur Dec. 11, 2117.Telescopes will be set up on the top floor of UNCG’s Walker Street Parking Deck, near the UNCG Baseball Stadium, for public viewing. The event is free and open to the public. Regular parking rates of $2 for the first hour and $1 for each additional hour will apply for those parking inside the deck.The transit won’t be visible if overhead conditions are cloudy. Call 336-334-3242 after 5 p.m. on June 5 if you aren’t sure if the skies are clear enough to see the transit.
