Transit of Venus 2012

Tuesday, June 5th, 2012

Tonight/tomorrow an important and historic event takes place: the last transit of Venus that anyone living on this planet today can expect to watch…!
Due its rarity and its importance for science in history this transit will be one of the most important celestial events of the 21st century. It starts tonight (June 5) at 22:09h UTC, and will finish at 04:49h UTC tomorrow (June 6). The previous transit has been in June 2004, and the next pair of transits will not occur until December 2117 and December 2125!

Weather is unfortunately not cooperating for the majority of people in Europe as predictions show it will be cloudy 🙁 , you can still follow it via livestreams on various websites.
