Now for something totally non-histology related – For those of us in the basement, who hardly ever see the sun:

Literally a once-in-a-lifetime (about every 112 years) event – Venus will pass in front of our Sun tonight Tues June 5. Starting about 5:45 pm Eastern time, for about 3 hours. All of North American should be able to see it. (Those in other countries – check the NASA website below.)

Do NOT look at the sun directly. Do NOT look at it with regular sunglasses. Use welders glass, pin hole camera, or telescope with solar filter are OK. Demonstrations of how to do these:

Or watch on live NASA broadcast. 

Have fun!
