Mother Nature has a veritable smörgåsbord of delights for us this month, particularly in the astronomical department. Yesterday saw six hours of viewing time for the Transit of Venus, such a rare event that, if you missed it, like many of us who weren’t prepared with the requisite telescope or custom viewers, you won’t get another chance to see it — well, ever. The next scheduled appearance is on Dec. 11, 2117.
Know where this is? Take a guess and let us know in the Comments.
