Tuesday night the sky played host to an event you'll probably never see again.
Venus passed between the Earth and sun, making itself visible for just a few hours.
With telescopes pointed skyward, a crowd of more than 100 held its breath as clouds blanketed the sun.
Until finally, there it was-- Venus passing in front of the sun.
Chuck Taricska, Astronomy Enthusiast: "I've only seen it projected on paper before so actually seeing it in the telescope is pretty neat."
Taricska: "It was really neat, a lot cooler than I actually thought."
Taricska then helped the dozens of others who lined up to see the tiny dot.
Many like David Hall, made it a point to bring the whole family.
Hall: "I thought it was amazing, I think that the opportunity to come up here and see something that's not gonna happen again for over 100 years and for the children to see it as well. It's something we couldn't miss."
Hall says the 6-hour event gives us all some perspective.
Hall: "It's just amazing in scope, for us to realize how small we are."@
And it's likely the last time any of us will ever see it.
Next chance? December 2117.
The last time Venus passed between the sun and the Earth was 2004.
