Nearly 100 people went to Pitt State to watch the Venus transit this afternoon.
The group witnessed the planet traveling around the sun through one of the professors solar filter telescope.
This is the 2nd time in 10 years the transit has occurred.
The next time this will happen will be in 2117.
Kids at the event say it's an experience they'll never forget.
10 year old Nathan Shriver says,
"Probably seeing it since it's not going to happen for another 105 years and I don't think im going to live till I'm 115."
Dr. David Kuehn the Professor of Physics and Anatomy at Pitt State says, "More important than seeing venus go by is having kids see the sun through a telescope they get to see sun spots...they see it's a round disc. "
The Venus transit will continue until around 1 in the morning.
