Tonight: Your venus is showing

Someone give us a Venus in Furs joke, please.

From eclipses to piggy backing shuttles to general Neil DeGrasse Tyson awesomeness, 2012 has been quite a year for astronomy. Tonight is another one of those situation: venus will pass right in front of the sun around sunset today, something that won’t happen again until 2117 when we’ll hopefully all be too busy playing with our hoverboards to care. Gothamist has a good roundup of the best places to watch it in NYC tonight, which includes watching parties on the High Line and a chance to hang out with Columbia astronomy nerds. See the full list here.
