Wizards of Venus

"William Crabtree observing transit of Venus, from The Manchester Murals by Ford Madox Brown" - Wikipedia

Watch the transit of Venus in front of the sun, live, right now, courtesy the wizards at NASA:

At this moment, Venus is fully in front of the disc of the sun.
This won't happen again until 2117.

The title of this post is a nod to the Carson of Venus series by Burroughs:

"An Apparatus adapted to the Reflecting Telescope for shewing The Transit of Venus"
