Tuesday, June 5, 2012
6:00 pm to 8:00 pm
Museum in Washington, DC

Join us for a special look at Venus as it passes between Earth and the Sun.  Astronomy educators and museum volunteers will assist you in viewing the transit through safe solar telescopes.  This is a must-see opportunity and the last chance to view the transit in our lifetime.   The telescopes will be set up outside, on the Jefferson Drive (National Mall) side of the Museum.

The special viewing will take place weather permitting.
