Venus in Transit Simulated

I can barely see Venus in transit with a naked eye from my desk right now (filtered with a solar viewer of course).  Hope the sky is clear when I get home so I can shoot some photos.   For now, this live simulation is pretty neat! The default location and is set to Reno, NV and you can see a simulated path of Venus for a specific location and specific point in time. We won't ever see this again in our lifetime unless you live for another 105 years.
