A small dark dot will be sliding across the sun tomorrow and you will have the chance to take part in the action.
This astronomical event can be seen from earth, and you can even see it for yourself--with the right viewing tools.
The planet Venus will be making it's big return in less than twenty four hours, and the Kika Silva Pla Planetarium has planned an evening for you to be able to see it.
Natural Sciences Department Chair at Santa Fe College, Sture Edvardsson says, "Venus is passing between the Earth and the sun, so we will see it as a black spot going across the face of the sun tomorrow."
Edvardsson along with James Albury, the planetarium's coordinator, invites you to come out and watch the projection of the transit of Venus tomorrow. Shows begin at 3:00pm and run until 4:00pm, with presentations every half hour. He says we should see Venus anywhere between the hours of 5:30 and 8:45pm.
