The planet Venus will pass in front of the sun today, a spectacle that won’t happen again this century.
As Venus passes, what looks like a small dot will appear on the face of the sun. NASA experts say the best time to view the event in the United States is around sunset.
If you can’t get outside to watch the transit of Venus live, NASA will be live-streaming the event.
