Wyatt Aegan, 8, of Vichy, Mo., views the transit of Venus across the sun through the filtered 80-milimeter telescope at Missouri S&T’s observatory near sunset on June 5. Below Aegan is an iPad showing a view of the sun through a telescope in Hawaii. Venus is the black dot silhouetted against the orange solar disc.

The next chance to see Venus transit the sun will occur in December 2117. (Photo by Terry Barner/ Missouri S&T)
