Transit Of Venus

Yesterday was a special event in astronomy because the transit of venus took place and won’t happen again until the year 2117.  The event occurs when the planet venus passes directly between the earth and sun according to the BBC’s website.  We have a couple of pictures here to look at but you can check out this link for more in-depth coverage.
