Viewing party for transit of Venus held at Lake Pueblo

The clouds didn't hinder the young and old who came out to Lake Pueblo for the transit of Venus.

It's a once in a lifetime opportunity to watch Venus pass in front of the sun because it won't happen again for another 105 years.

The Southern Colorado Astronomical Society set up special equipment for viewing near the North Shore of Lake Pueblo, including telescopes with solar filters.

The view was a bit hazy because of cloud cover, but they could still see Venus.

They'll be out there as long as it's visible.
