Definitely an amazing ending to a top notch show. Can’t wait for the director’s cut. “Our star is just one story (in the sky).” Absolutely paves the way for a great season 2, whomever gets to be part of it. Would have liked to see a few loose ends tied up, but it was extremely satisfying, and what I cared about most was resolved. It’s like Woody said, “we were never going to get them all.” Both #woody and #mcconaughey deserve an #emmy.

…and wear your sunglasses at night**. For a once (or twice) in a lifetime planetary extravaganza tonight!
Venus will be in transit today- meaning it will move across the face of the sun as a small dot (see picture).
Some call it an event that’s rarer than Haley’s Comet!
Venus and Mercury are located between us and the sun—
So their *year*—or distance traveled around the giant star filled with hot plasma—is shorter.
That means we sometimes get to *actually* check out the luminated planets.
However, it’s very rare for Venus to cross in a position we can see here on Earth.
It’s an event that happens in pairs…last occuring in 2004.
But it won’t pass by *again* until 2117 (So leave a note for your great-great-great grandkids).
If you want to check it out…Education Manager Megan Dominguez of Schenectady’s Suits-Bueche Planetarium gave me a few easy viewing tips to share with you.
"If they want to be able to see it…don’t look directly at the sun. If you have a way of seeing it through a solar scope or way of projecting—I even have sunspotters here we can pull out as a way of seeing the surface without looking directly at it."
Of course it is a bit cloudy out there. So if you’re at home, keep your fingers crossed for a break in the clouds between six pm and sunset. The first link references other times/places to check it out.
**Don’t EVER stare directly at the SUN, even with sunglasses on. That was a joke. You must have a pair of properly designed, certified solar filters. That does not mean sunglasses that are UVA and UVB safe. Check out the link for various “projection” options. Remember: your eyes are your friend. They’ll be there for you after Venus leaves.
