This is the Transit of Venus 2012. A once-in-a-lifetime event that many of us have been lucky to see twice. Back in 2004 we saw a magnificent Venus Transit at Sunset. The Earth and Venus in front of the Sun at the same time. Here is the 2004 picture. In 105 years we will see Venus over the face of the Sun again. But in 2030......Mars will see a Transit. When will Mars see a Transit of the Eartn and Moon ?

 
 
        Time-Lapse Movie. Venus travels across the Sun over 6.5 hours. Cloud obscured the middle section. A long drive north found clear skies and the movie continues.
