Planet watchers ready as Venus to cross in front of sun Tuesday- Kingsport Times-News
“It’s going to be a little black dot crossing in front of the sun,” said Dorfman. “It’s not the same when we have a solar eclipse and the moon passes in front of the sun because the moon is as big or bigger than the sun at that point because it is much closer to the Earth. You’ll still see it (Venus). It’s just going to be small because of the distance.
