September 11, 2012 - Venus Passing the Sun



Quote:
The Transit of Venus 2012 offered a spectacular show to the enthusiastic sky watchers. People from the 7 continents gathered to watch this spectacular phenomenon of Venus passing the sun. This event will re occur only in the 22nd century around 2117 AD.

Venus can be seen as a small dark spot on the Red Giant Sun, like a bug on a large plate, reported Daily Mail.
via Are You Amazed



Voice of America interviews Jim Green of NASA's Planetary Space Division.

Quote:
“Because Venus’ orbit is inclined to ours, we only see it at very special times when the two orbits connect to one another – we call nodes - and everything lines up perfectly. So this actually is the last transit that we will see in our lifetime. The next one will be in twenty one seventeen.”

Does this mean everyone will fall in love??


Or that your love will go down in a fire-y crash?
