The Transit of Venus (Monica Young)

**I am an astronomer turned science writer, currently interning at Sky & Telescope. Among other things, I have written for Penn State's media relations office, the Association for Women in Science (AWIS) magazine, and weekly blog posts at http://starsandspice.tumblr.com. I have also volunteered for numerous outreach programs, including regular planetarium shows at Penn State for 2nd-8th graders. (Questions from the 2nd graders were the best!)

Though the transit of Venus is viewable for several hours across much of the globe, the complete transit can only be seen near the Pacific — i.e., Hawaii, Alaska, Australia, and parts of Asia, unless you take to the sea. So if you don't want to miss a wink of this last-in-our-lifetime event, check out some of the live feeds below that will be available from around the world.
If you or someone you know is hosting a live feed online, let us know and we'll post it here!
