Description:

The transit of Venus across the Sun has enthralled astronomers and amateur stargazers alike. They gathered across the world to view the rare phenomenon. The planet appeared as a small black pinhole moving slowly across the face of our Sun. People turned their gaze to the small silhouette of Venus in a spectacle that will not be seen again until 2117.

Most areas of North and Central America caught a glimpse of Venus before the sunset, while Hawaii, Alaska, eastern Australia and eastern Asia where treated to a full display as the transit occurred during daylight hours.

    Kind of puts a nice perspective on things.... and to think there are stars out there that would be the same relative size as venus is to our sun if it passed near one.

    Gotta love how presumably rational and intelligent scientists can look you in the face and say this all started "when [virtually] nothing exploded".. pull the other one. Seems much more like a well balanced and intelligent system to me. But hey, if someone can create a Rolex from a few sticks of dynamite and some metal [we'll allow this as a cheat] then please post it here.
