LPL co-hosts Venus Transit viewing


LPL partnered with the Planetary Science Institute (PSI) and Flandrau Science Center to help Tucsonans view the June 5 transit of Venus. Hundreds of Tucsonans donned their transit glasses to enjoy the viewing party. Viewing and lectures took place from 3:00 to 8:00 p.m. There were telescopes on the mall, and lots of eclipse glasses were available. Visitors could watch various live feeds of the transit. PSI Senior Education Specialist (and retired LPL faculty member) Larry Lebofsky lectured about the transit.
