Attempted viewing of Venus will take place this evening from 5:45pm to 6:30pm CST at the Highland Road Park Observatory. The predicted quality of the sky is excellent, so take advantage! Binoculars are recommended.

The next greatest eastern elongation of Venus will take place on Friday 11 August from 8pm to 9:30pm. HRPO personnel will have equipment set up at the Burbank Soccer Complex across the street from the dog park; all ages are invited and binoculars are encouraged. (This event will pre-empt programs on actual HRPO property for that evening.)
