Transit of Venus @ TELUS Spark (June 5, 2012)
On June 5, TELUS Spark hosted a public event for the Transit of Venus, only to be clouded out. Inside, people watched the NASA TV feed of the live event broadcast from Mauna Kea in Hawaii. Families took souvenir photos of themselves posing for posterity in front of the big screen image of the transit in progress. Outside, the RASC set up telescopes but to no avail, but did conduct media interviews. Better luck in 2117!
