Venus Transit

Altough it would make a cool name, Venus Transit is not (AFAIK) a new heavy metal band: tomorrow, the planet Venus is going to pass in front of the Sun, as seen from here.

More info here. The site lists various ways to observe this safely.

I’ve been successfully using piles of exposed photo film to look at the sun in the past (usual disclaimer: do this at your own risk), without any problem. But these pictures, make it look like Venus might a bit small to be easily visible to the naked eye.

The transit will start around 5:20 UTC and last until 11:24 UTC.
