Here in the NYC metro area, we’re clouded over. 🙁 Fortunately, we can still watch live streaming of the Venutian Solar transit over on NASA EDGE!:
This is the Official Sun-Earth Day webcast for the Transit of Venus. Don’t miss the NASA EDGE team and the Sun-Earth Day team as they bring you this last of a lifetime event live from the top of Mount Mauna Kea, Hawaii, through our partnership with the University of Hawaii Institute for Astronomy.
Some great commentary on the transit, as well as how NASA studies these phenomena and how we learn about our solar system. Worth watching just for the enthusiastic and engaging commentary. 🙂
Adafruit has had paid day off for voting for our team for years, if you need help getting that going for your organization, let us know – we can share how and why we did this as well as the good results. Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote
