CLEVELAND - The transit of Venus will happen Tuesday night beginning at around 6:00 pm and can be see in northern Ohio.
If you're an astronomy geek like me, you're going to want to make sure you have a clear view of the western sky Tuesday night. If you do, and the sky is somewhat clear, you'll see something you'll never see again. The transit of Venus.
Basically, the transit of Venus is when Venus passes in front of the sun between the earth and the sun. It will appear as a small dot slowly meandering along the bottom of the sun.
Here's the cool part. You'll be able to see it -- and this won't happen again for another 105 years, 2117.
The transit will start just after 6 p.m. Tuesday and last until the sun sets.
We will be streaming the transit of Venus live on newsnet5.com Tuesday from 6 p.m. until sunset.
We will have a camera set up at Edgewater Park in Cleveland. We will have a special lens to easily view the transit.
As always never look directly at the sun. Use a device to reflect the sun onto something else.
