See the transit of Venus with Everett stargazers

The Everett Astronomical Society is scheduled, weather permitting, to host public viewing of the Transit of Venus across the face of the sun, 3-8:30 p.m. Tuesday at the ‘west bluff’ parking lot portion of Legion Park, 145 Alverson Blvd.

Venus will appear as a small dot moving across the sun. It will not occur again for 105 years.

Members of the EAS will have specially filtered telescopes and special solar viewing ‘hydrogen-alpha’ telescopes available to see this phenomenon.
