On the 5th of this month known as June, there will be a much rarer show to be seen. For those who watched the eclipse of the Sun recently, I wouldn’t throw away those glasses or whatever you used to watch it with. A much rarer eclipse is about to happen.
On June 5th, if you watch the sun, you will see Venus cross over the sun’s disk as it continues on it’s journey around our solar system. The next time this will happen will be the year 2117, so enjoy it while it lasts. According to some sources this will be the last time for a long time before you see it again and it is suppose to last June 5-6th as the sun starts to rise in Europe, which will most likely put it in our vicinity as the sun rises in the USA some hours later.
I could be wrong on the hours, but not the date(s), but when ever it happens if you want to watch Venus transit through the sun or near the sun like a small dot crossing the surface then get out there and hope that the sky will be clear and not cloudy :).
You can find much information out there dealing with this spectacular show by looking under Venus or Venus Transit in your search engine. Enjoy!
