Late Tuesday Afternoon around 5pm look at the sun. If you keep watching the sun, you will see Venus. That’s right! Venus will be making transit! This is definitely an event for all sky watchers. This event is considered “rare”. Probably because this won’t happen again until December of 2117….
I will be 132 years old the next time this occurs…. Pretty sure it’s a good idea for us all to have a gander.
If you can’t watch it for yourself, the website below will give you full coverage!
Be sure to break out the lawn chairs, digital cameras, and bug spray!
