You couldn’t ask for a better night to gaze at the sky.
There will be something special to see in the night sky on June 30…
On the brightness scale, Venus ranks top as the brightest planet and trails only the sun and the moon as brightest sky object.
A rare sighting of the planet Venus passing the sun Tuesday evening.
The planet Venus will pass between the Earth and the Sun — appearing as a small black dot passing across the sun’s bright disk.
Beyond the romance of its rarity, Tuesday’s transit of Venus could help scientists learn more about the composition of the solar wind — the stream of charged particles emanating from the sun.
