Venus travels across the sun

People watch a live webcast from the summit of Mauna Kea, Hawaii during the transit of Venus across the Sun at the auditorium of the Universum Museum in the National University (UNAM) in Mexico City, Mexico, Tuesday, June 5, 2012. Thousands of people gathered at the museum to get a glimpse of the event that will only be seen again in 2117 but due to weather conditions they were only able to see it via internet.
