The last Transit of Venus in our lifetimes
Listen up geeks, tomorrow morning at 5:04CDT will by the last chance until 2117 to witness the transit of Venus across the face of the sun. Because the plane of Venus's orbit is slightly oblique to that of Earth, it only passes directly between Earth and the Sun every 121 years or so. In other years it's too high or too low.
Plan to get up a little early like me and open this site from NASA and watch a web cast of it.
