Venus Transit This EveningJune 5th, 2012 at 3:31 pm by Kevin Orpurt under Kevin Orpurt's Blog, Weather, WTHI Blog
TONIGHT! Beginning at just after 6pm EDT, Venus will cross the disc of the Sun. The last time this happened was in 2004. Given that, this is an extremely rare event. Transits occur in pairs, so the next pair of transits won’t happen until 2117. Our web site has a live stream from NASA, but I really like this site: http://events.slooh.com/ Either way, this is an event that will never happen again in our lifetimes.
