Watch once-in-a-lifetime transit of Venus


You can watch a cosmic spectacle that most of us won't see again.

The planet Venus will pass directly between the Earth and the sun -venus-retrograde-rotation a movement that will look like a black dot inching its way across the sun. The movement, known to astronomers as the Transit of Venus, will be visible in the skies above Minnesota from about 5 p.m. to sunset.

It's a rare event that won't happen again until 2117. The spectacle has sparked Venus viewing parties at museums and schools around the world.

There's also a cosmic party planned for the astronauts aboard the International Space Station.
