On Tuesday, June 5 (as seen from the Eastern hemisphere), Venus will cross the face of the sun. The transit will take about seven hours and begin at 6:09 p.m. ET. It’s not likely to happen again in your lifetime; the next transit will be in the year 2117.
Please don't stare directly into the sun - you could damage your eyes. But there are safe ways to capture some good photos of the Venus transit.Space.com has these tips for safely photographing the event.
