So what is a “transit”? I didn’t know either! It’s that point when Venus passes directly between the moon and the sun. It will happen for those of us in North America on June 5, and will be the only time in your lifetime that you will see it! (…..unless you happen to live an additional 105 years from now which I’m thinking is pretty slim!) Transit of Venus can pretty much tell you anything you could possibly want to know about this awesome time coming up. They are also some suggestions there for eye protection as you will be looking into the sun! Make sure to grab your kids since this is their only opportunity to view it too! You can also see the past transit histories as well!
