The Tulsa Air and Space Museum & Planetarium and the Tulsa Astronomy Club is offering a once in a lifetime chance to view a rare space phenomenon.
Tuesday, June 5th, Venus will pass between the Earth and the Sun. This means the black disk of Venus will be visible through specially equipped telescopes as it passes across the face of the Sun. In addition to the Transit, visitors should be able to witness sunspots on the surface of the sun.
Weather permitting, telescopes will be set up at the planetarium of the TASM, located at 3624 N. 74th East Avenue.
Planetarium Production Manager, Madhu Rajagopal said, "This is the last chance for this generation to view Venus's transit of the Sun because there will not be another until December of 2117."
