Today is the day to look to the sky and see something you probably have never seen before, and definitely will never see again.  The Transit of Venus.

A couple of scientists with Shreveport ties have travelled to Alaska to view and photograph the event.
There will be a viewing party at Ralph A. Worley Observatory held by the Shreveport-Bossier Astronomical Society that will be free to the public.

The event will start around 5pm our time, and should be viewable for nearly 12 hours.
