It has low humidity, high elevation and a darkened desert. That part of the state has attracted quite a few astronomers, both professional and amateur. We sent NPR's Peter Breslow to Tucson to seek out this community of stargazers.<p>PETER BRESLOW, BYLINE: Our story starts not with a darkened constellation-pocked sky, but under a blazing sun on June 5th. It's one of the rarest of celestial events, the transit of Venus across the sun. Sat, 14 Jul 2012 11:54:00 +0000 Peter Breslow 607 at http://nipr.fm
