Skywatchers Prepare for Transit of Venus

In June astronomers across the world will be hoping to get a clear view of the Transit of Venus for the last time in their lives. On June 5 and 6, Venus will pass directly between Earth and the Sun, visible as a small black dot gliding slowly across Sun’s face. The Transits occur in a pattern that repeats every 243 years, meaning the next Transit won’t appear for another 105 years. Get more info at transitofvenus.org.
