The Venus Transit

Today is an amazing day. It is the Transit of Venus. This only happens each 105 years. We are very lucky to witness it.

We had to use special glasses to see the Transit. If we looked into the sun without them our eyes would hurt or we could possibly get blinded if we looked to long. It looked like this >>>>>> 


The sun has moved. Venus seems to be following the sun. When we look at it for the second time the sun seems to glow even more than the last time. But this is only my opinion.


The sun has moved heaps. >>>>>>>>>                                  

At 4:44 the Venus will disappear for another 105 years.
Never in our lives will we see this again. Humans won’t see this until 2117.
