Transit of Venus Party
posted by: abeebe
I had a wonderful opportunity to observe the transit of Venus this past month (June 6th, 2012). Dr. Craig Lent is a professor in the Electrical Engineering Dept. at the University of Notre Dame. He is an amateur astrophysicist as well as an astrophotographer. He kindly set up his personal telescopes at the Trinity School Athletic Center, and hosted a star party- or actually a Transit of Venus party.
Here are some pictures of Dr. Lent and some of the observers.
