Venus Transit

Every century or so, something truly special happens in the sky, and it happens twice: Venus passes in between the sun and earth.The most recent one was in 2004, and the second half of the pair is next week, during sunset on June 5th for North American observers, and during sunrise on June 6th for many in Europe and Asia. After this, the next one isn’t until 2117.In the United States, the transit will begin at roughly 6:04 Eastern, 5:04 Central, 4:05 Mountain, and 3:06 Pacific Time. ( The Smithsonia.web)
