Did you miss the Venus transit Tuesday?

Riverhead News-Review reader Will Burkard was at Reeves Beach when he caught the once-in-a-lifetime celestial event with his telescope.

The Venus transit occurs when Venus, the second planet from the Sun and the Earth’s neighbor, crosses the Sun’s face. The rare event will not happen again until 2117.
