Transit of Venus Family Event at the Challenger Learning Center | Events
For over 100 years the main quest of astronomers was to pin down the distance between Earth and the Sun (the Astronomical Unit), which would give them a key to the size of the solar system. Careful studies of the transit of Venus became the gold mine they would harvest to reveal this measure. "If the weather will not permit local viewing, we will view the transit through a live broadcast in Hawaii," adds Susan Jonason, Executive Director. "Rain or shine, this will be a fun evening for families to share at the Challenger Learning Center of Maine."
To help plan, please call 990-2900 x1 and leave a message with the number of adults and children who will be attending. Space is limited.
