Venus Passes Across the Sun

Venus Passes Across the Sun

Astronomers and people around the world have trained their telescopes on the skies to watch Venus pass in front of the Sun, a once-in-a-lifetime event that will not be seen for another 105 years. The transit of Venus began shortly after 6pm on Tuesday (8am today AEST) in cloud-free areas of North America, Central America and the northern part of South America, and was visible, with magnification, as a tiny black dot on the solar surface.
