A boy along with others wears special goggles to watch Venus crossing the sun's face on June 5, 2012 in College Park, Maryland. Astronomers around the world trained their telescopes on the skies Tuesday to watch Venus pass in front of the Sun, a once-in-a-lifetime event that will not be seen for another 105 years.
