Venus Transit 2012

First last month’s eclipse, now the transit of Venus. The sky is full of wonders!

The “transit of Venus” describes the crossing of the planet Venus across the sun. This celestial event only occurs every 114 years. Using special glasses (never look directly into the sun!), viewers watched as the two entities slowly slid past one another. Truly an amazing sight.
