Transit of Venus
In this photo made using a series of red, blue and green filters, Venus begins to pass in front of the sun, as visible from Hutchinson, Kan. at 6:15 p.m. CST on Tuesday, June 5, 2012. From the U.S. to South Korea, people around the world turned their attention to the daytime sky on Tuesday and early Wednesday in Asia to make sure they caught the once-in-a-lifetime sight of the transit of Venus, which won't be seen for another 105 years.
