NASA's Transit of Venus Sun-Earth Day Event!

This year will be the last Transit of Venus to be seen in our lifetime. The next will not occur until 2117. To mark the occasion, NASA will set up a live telecast of the event from Hawaii which is the best place to view it.

During the six hours a number of video clips were contracted to highlight the science behind the Transit and the culture and history of Hawaii.
