Transits of Venus –
where the planet is visible as a tiny black dot slowly crossing the sun – are
rare. The next one is happening on Tuesday, June 5th, and will be visible from North America, for a few hours just before sunset. After that, it won’t happen again for 105 years.
Mark Breen, senior meteorologist from the Fairbanks Museum and Planetarium and Andy Nash, chief meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Burlington talk with VPR’s Jane Lindholm about the weather outlook for the next few months.
