KELSEYVILLE, Calif. – The Taylor Observatory-Norton Planetarium will offer viewings of the historic transit of Venus on Tuesday.
The observatory will offer the viewings from 2:30 p.m. to 9 p.m.
When Venus passes directly between Earth and the Sun, it will appear as a small dot gliding slowly across the face of the sun.
The Tuesday transit will be the last one until 2117.
The observatory's solar telescopes will allow a great opportunity to experience this event. For your safety, solar viewing glasses will be provided.
