The girl was among hundreds who gathered at the Northern Illinois University observatory June 5 to get a glimpse of the planet Venus as it crossed the face of the sun, a rare astronomical event that isn’t expected to happen again for 105 years.
Gene Savory of Malta said he was there because “this doesn’t happen that often.”
