Watch live: Transit of Venus
Watch live the transit of Venus, one of the rarest cosmic spectacles that won't come again in 105 years.

This is your last chance to catch one of the rarest cosmic spectacles - Venus slowly crossing the face of the sun. The transit of Venus will be visible from much of Earth - Tuesday from the Western Hemisphere and Wednesday from the Eastern Hemisphere. This sight won't come again until 105 years from now - in 2117.

The nearly 7-hour show can be seen in its entirety from the western Pacific, eastern Asia and eastern Australia. Other parts of the globe will catch portions of the transit. In India the celestial spectacle will be visible at around 7:00 AM IST on Wednesday June 6 in most parts of the country. If clouds spoil your view or if you're shut out, you can watch a live webcast in the video embedded below.
