PETER'S NEW YORK, Sunday, June 3, 2012--The University of Toronto will highlight a relatively rare astronomical event on Tuesday with a multimedia presentation at its Varsity Stadium. Not only will the Transit of Venus be projected onto a large viewing screen, but special disposable eye gear fitted with specially treated plastic filters will be distributed to the crowd to prevent anyone from having their vision impaired due to the damage that often results from directly viewing the sun. The planet Venus will show up as a round black dot during a six-hour pilgrimage across the sun. During the transit, there will also be a performance in the stadium of part of an opera, the plot of which is based on the true story of a man who sacrificed practically everything of value in his life to view the event.
