Transit of Venus : 5/6 June 2012

Quote:
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.

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 lifetime.

Venus Love-Me Chain!

Sorry, had to get that out my system. Time to dust out the ol' telescope I suppose. Wait, sun-. Nevermind, I suppose I'll have to wait like everyone else for the pretty wallpapers.

I actually can see a unusually big, bright object in the night sky here. Don't know if its Venus or not but its definitely not a star.
