SLIDESHOW: Transit of Venus Across the Sun

The planet Venus began its passage before the sun, a very rarely seen event, on June 5. The transit of Venus involves the planet Venus crossing in front of the sun. The last time it was seen in California was 1882 and the next pair of events will not happen again until the year 2117 and 2125. Photos by Getty Images.
