Telescopes at the ready, amateur astronomers stake out a picturesque outcrop to watch the 2004 transit of Venus from Huntington Reservation in Cleveland, Ohio.

The 2012 transit promises to be one of the most observed and most recorded astronomical events in history, in part because it'll be visible in its entirety from the western Pacific, eastern Asia, eastern Australia, and high northern latitudes. (See a visibility map for the transit of Venus.)

For North America, the first half of the transit will be visible late Tuesday afternoon, while for much of Europe the sun will rise on Wednesday with the transit already in progress.
