If you're reading this, and not being read to...chances are great that this will be the last time you will be able to see the full planet Venus, outline and all, in your entire life. Some of us were lucky enough to be able to see it back in 2004, but if you miss it this time around, you're going to have to wait quite a while to see it again. 6 more years you're thinking? Try 105 more years. The next one will be visible when I reach the ripe age of 130 years old. So how are you going to be able to see this? Read on and find out.
