Venus Transit

Venus will cross the face of the sun for the last time in our lifetime. The only chance we have of observing this is early morning on 6th June when the last hour or so of the transit will be visible from the UK depending on your location. Sunrise is approx 04:47BST so get up early for the sunrise (weather permitting) but don’t for Christ sake look directly at the sun. The higher you are or a clear view of the horizon should give you a fighting chance.
