Star Party Fans and the Transit of Venus

Special Astronomy Event, the Transit of Venus across the Sun as seen from earth, its a rare event.

Dont look at the sun directly without a filter! Sadly theres no Wolly Park star party event for this Venus transit, and we won’t be able to watch it from Earth again till 2117!
