Trying to figure out if the Venus transit will be visible where you are and when it’ll happen? This website is handy. It’ll show you a map so you can make sure the location you enter is correct, then it’ll tell you a probability that it’ll be cloudy, and the important times (first contact, transit center, etc.) A slider on the bottom lets you adjust the central dial so you can see things like what time sunset will cut off the view.
The one thing it doesn’t tell me is whether or not the new apartment building will block the view from the observatory…
