From the Roof: The Transit of Venus
June 5, 2012 was a special day for any Department of Physics: the Transit of Venus! This rare astronomical event takes place when Venus passes between the Sun and the Earth, something that won’t happen again until 2117. Students, faculty and their families looked at the silhouette of the planet through a telescope.
