Two of the biggest astronomical events of the year – May 20’s annular solar eclipse and June 5’s transit of Venus – are just around the corner. What’s the big deal, and how can you get in on the action?

Paul Doherty (a.k.a. Patio Plasma), senior scientist at San Francisco’s Exploratorium chats with MSNBC science editor Alan Boyle about eclipse/transit angles; how and where to see this month’s eclipse and next month’s once-in-a-lifetime transit safely; Explo activities and events and using virtual worlds - particularly Second Life - for outreach/education/science experiences.
