What is a transit of Venus?
When Venus passes directly between
earth and the sun, we see the distant
planet as a small dot gliding slowly
across the face of the sun. Historically,
this rare alignment is how we
measured the size of our solar
system.
When is it?
The next transit of Venus occurs June
5 or 6, 2012, depending on your
location. Observers in North America
see it the evening of June 5. This will
be the last transit of Venus to occur in
your life time
