Default Re: Transit of Venus

I guess I misheard it on the radio. It's alright though. I watched bits of it on the news. Besides, I see it in the evening and morning skies most of the year.

I think I have a better chance of going on a manned mission to another planet and catching Venus transitting the Sun than living for another 105 years. I might even catch Earth transitting the Sun too.

On a somewhat related note, here is a neat picture of the International Space Station and Space Shuttle Atlantis (docked) transitting the Sun back in 2010.
