VENUS TRANSIT: On June 8th, for the first time since 1882, Venus will pass
directly between Earth and the Sun. The planet's black silhouette will be
visible from Australia, Asia, Africa, Europe and eastern parts of the
Americas. Visit Spaceweather.com for observing tips and links to live

SPACE STATION TRANSIT: Transits of Venus are rare, but this is
unprecedented: The International Space Station (ISS) is going to cross the
Sun four times during the 6+ hour transit of Venus on June 8th. Advanced
observers in parts of Europe, Africa and Asia might be able to record the
double transit. Get the details at Spaceweather.com.
