NASA astronaut visits Penn High for transit of Venus lecture
MISHAWAKA, Ind. -- An astronaut visited Penn High Thursday as a part of NASA's "You Can Learn a Lot from a Dot" program.
Next month, Venus will travel in between the sun and Earth and look like a small dot moving in the sky.
“Instead of seeing it as a bright evening star as we have been for the last few months, we will actually see it as a silhouette against the face of the sun,” said Chief of Education Initiatives Steven Williams, “It’s a very rare event.”
The transit of Venus will happen June 5 and won't happen again until 2117.
