Venus Viewing 

When: Tue., June 5, 4-8 p.m. 2012
Phone: 660-5676
Price: Free

Jeremiah Horrocks has been lionized by St. Michael's Church in Hoole, England, for two things: correctly predicting the first transit of Venus in recorded history, and skipping some of it to fulfill his religious commitments on that Sunday in 1639. If you skip tonight's transit to catch Highway to Heaven reruns, you will not be similarly rewarded. So join Colorado Springs Astronomical Society members and their telescopes today at Palmer Park's Parking Lot A (3650 Maizeland Road, to take in this once-in-a-lifetime passage of Venus across the sun's face. It starts at 4, continues till sunset, and is free. — Kirk Woundy
