I can’t quite tell from the NASA illustration how well we will be able to view the transit of Venus across the face of the sun, but we are going to try. Because Venus’ transits occur in pairs, the last time this occurred was in 2004, the year our daughter was born, but it will not occur again until 2117. So this is it.
For more information, see [NASA’s site](http://eclipse.gsfc.nasa.gov/OH/transit12.html).
And, of course, there’s an [iPhone (and Android) app](http://transitofvenus.nl/wp/getting-involved/phone-app/).
Here’s a site that offers [local transit times](http://transitofvenus.nl/wp/where-when/local-transit-times/).
