Monday we told you about the an astronomical event that will happen tonight and not again in our lifetime.
Today, the clouds came. And they've persisted. But will they keep us from seeing Venus pass in front of the sun?
Maybe, said National Weather Service meteorologist John Mayers. "The cloud cover is pretty extensive," he said, adding that the deck Northeast Ohio is under stretches from Indiana to Pennsylvania.
"And there's no indication that what's causing the clouds will move."
But, he added, there are some breaks along the Lake Erie shoreline. Edgewater Park, might be the best place in Northeast Ohio to see it.
You can also try , 5080 Fishcreek Rd., in Stow. Go to the field behind the school at 6:05 p.m. and join the Stow Astronomy Club.
And for a once-in-a-lifetime event, I'll risk it.
