While in Maui, watch as Venus crosses the path of the Sun

 

While in Maui, watch as Venus crosses the path of the Sun and of course this magical event only takes place every few years. But only if you are lucky enough to take action will you be able to see for yourself! Because on Tuesday, June 5 you will be given a once in a lifetime opportunity to see this actually happen from the island of Maui, Hawaii.

While in Maui, watch Venus crosses the path of the SunCelestial events that only come around once every few years make a perfectly good excuse to travel. When one of the best spots for viewing said event is in Hawaii, you probably don’t need much more coaxing.

Maui just might be the place to be on June 5 this year when the planet Venus crosses the path of the sun. While the Venus transit will be viewable in most parts of the world, in Hawaii the transit will occur at sunset (rather than sunrise), and given that Maui is the “house of the sun” it seems even more appropriate.

The Hyatt Regency Maui Resort and Spa has a series of events to celebrate the occasion, including a big screen televised broadcast hosted by the resort’s astronomy director, solar shades to protect your eyes for the viewing, a special Venus Menu at the hotel restaurant, and even a group vow renewal — Venus is, after all, the goddess of love. Guests can also put the resort’s HD telescope to good use during their stay for even more stargazing.

The Hyatt Regency Maui Resort and Spa is offering a special “Sunshine on Sale” package to coincide with the Venus transit, which grants guests a fifth night free (when they book 4 nights) and free daily breakfast for two.

The Venus transit will be visible on Maui from noon to sunset, and this extremely rare planetary alignment won’t happen again until 2117. Book on the hotel website or by calling 808-661-1234. At the time of this writing, round-trip airfare from Portland to Maui around the event started at $481.

These deals have limited availability and blackout dates do apply. As always, details are subject to change, so check directly with the hotels and airlines to confirm.

While in Maui, watch as Venus crosses the path of the Sun and make sure to tell all your friends to have their telescopes ready. You camera buffs may want to be ready as well, as you snap-off some amazing photos…
