Venus Transit. Last Chance of your Lifetime!

This year the very rare astronomical event of a venus transit occurs on June 6. This will be the last chance of your lifetime to see a Venus Transit, the next will be not until 2117 Dec 11.
Click on this map to figure out if and when you can see the Venus Transit at the place you're living.
The Venus Transit is an eclipse where the Venus is in front of the sun. In case you're planning to watch the Venus Transit take care of your eyes. It is very dangerous to look into the sun without proper protection. Sunglasses won't do, you will need special glasses like the ones you were able to buy at the last moon eclipse.
If you're interested in this event check here. I also recommend to search the internet for local astronomical organisations and clubs.
