Watching planets at area college Tuesday


Whether you’re a star-gazer or not, you’re sure to hear about what’s called “Venus Transit”, an event where the planet Venus is closest to us, as it moves between the Sun and earth.  This astronimcal event should be in our viewing area between six o’clock tommorrow afternoon and sunset.  For James Albury, the planetarium coordinator at Santa Fe College, events like this and others got him fascinated with astronomy.  Events start at 3pm, with most viewing between 6-8pm.
