In the absence of our own Skywatcher, I would like to step up to the plate and announce a big celestial event. It is quite rare! The planet Venus, after a great showing this spring is poised to TRANSIT across the sun tomorrow. The planet's dark disk will move across the bright photosphere of the sun around 5:30 EST or I guess around 10:30 GMT.

If you would like to see a live webcast of the event you could visit this site.
