Transit of Venus

If you are in the Omaha area tomorrow, the planetarium at UNO will be having an event from 4:30 to around 9PM. A short film will also be screened. Whatever you do, don't look directly at the sun (same rules as a solar eclipse apply).

If you see me, come over and say hello-I'll probably have interesting snacks stowed in my handbag (I think we still have flapjack from the weekend). See, I just bribed you with biscuits to come see the transit. I know I won't be around for the one in the next century-and you probably won't either...dudes, this is a once in a lifetime experience. Now really, why wouldn't you want to do this?

Bring insect repellent.
