Submission + - Venus to transit the sun Tuesday (

shuz writes: The more than six-and-a-half-hour transit, which starts just after 22:00 GMT on Tuesday June 5th is a very rare astronomical phenomenon that will not be witnessed again until 2117. Most of the earth should be able to view at least a portion of the transit. Please do not look directly into the sun.
