Transit of Venus Viewing at Red Feather Lakes
Join the Soaring Eagle Ecology Center and Colorado State University in viewing a once-in-a-lifetime event - the transit of Venus across the face of the Sun!
It can best be viewed through a solar telescope. Join us with NCAS astronomers and their various types of solar telescopes to see Venus racing across the surface of the Sun. The beginning of the transit starts ~4:15pm and lasts until the Sun sets behind the mountains.
Science demos and activity tables, sun bead bracelet making, cookies and lemonade are provided free without charge throughout the event to give you a chance to see Venus's progress across the Sun.
Along with the Northern Colorado Astronomical Society, who will provide telescope to see the transit, presenters include the Little Shop of Physics, the Cooperative Institute for Research in the Atmosphere, and the Center for Multiscale Modeling of Atmospheric Processes, all located at CSU.
All ages are welcome - please ensure that children are supervised.
