Moorhead State right spot to see Venus transit today

Email

MOORHEAD - Astronomy enthusiasts around the area are gearing up for an event today that won't happen again for another 105 years.

Starting a little bit after 5 p.m., the orbit of planet Venus will take it directly in front of the sun, blocking out a small portion of its light as it crosses between the Earth and the sun - a "transit of Venus," as astronomers call it.
