The Transit of Venus
Today at 11:15 Venus passed the sun. This only happens once every 105 years! Venus looked like a tiny little black dot on the right hand side of the sun. The Transit will end at 4:44 today. When we were looking at the sun we used solar viewers like sunglasses, every-thing was black except the sun which was bright orange. I don’t think any astronauts will be able to visit Venus for it least 200 years because even if they work out a way to survive the heat Venus’s atmosphere will crush them the minute they step foot on Venus! We are really lucky to have experienced this!
