Stargazers from across the globe gathered together to watch one of the rarest astronomical spectacles today. From the U.S. and UK to South Korea, people around the world turned their attention to the daytime sky to make sure they caught the planet Venus passing directly between the sun and Earth. In fact, a transit that won’t occur again for another 105 years. The transit of Venus happens in pairs eight years apart – but then with more than a century between cycles.
