The Transit of Venus next month...next time is over 100 years from now.

Tuesday, May 29, 2012

This is really cool. Let your children watch. You watch. The next time is over 100 years from now. I got this from Farmers Almanac. They say that the Transit of Venus is one of the rarest transits. .... And remember...do not look directly at the sun.

Transit of Venus
The year’s celestial highlight, visible in the afternoon in the United States and Canada, is the transit of Venus across the Sun on June 5.

A transit occurs when a planet passes between the Sun and Earth, so that we can see the planet’s silhouette move across the face of the Sun. Transits of Venus are exceedingly rare. After this June, the next one won’t occur until the year 2117. (See “The Sky Is Falling!” in The 2012 Old Farmer’s Almanac, page 96.)
