The Venus Transit Will Be The Most Spectacular Thing You Probably Won’t See Today
Today (June 5th) marks a once-in-a-lifetime astronomical event as the planet Venus transits across the face of the sun in perfect alignment for viewing on Earth. It hasn't been seen here since 1882, and won't occur again until 2117. It's one of the rarest predictable astronomical events, and will likely be obscured as storms move through the area.
