For Life


A very special event is going to occur on the 8th of June! The planet Venus is going to pass directly in front of the sun and will appear as a tiny black disc against the sun's surface for several hours as it slowly crosses from left to right. This hasn't happened since the 19th century -- a very rare event! So don't miss it!

To celebrate this event, we're going to talk about space and other spectacular celestial light shows for the next two weeks!
