Yesterday was perhaps one of the historical date in my life and maybe to some of you who have had the chance to view the transit of Venus across the Sun. This phenomena takes place when the planet Venus passes directly between the Sun and Earth, becoming visible against (and hence obscuring a small portion of) the solar disk.
During a transit, Venus can be seen from Earth as a small black disk moving across the face of the Sun. The duration of such transits is usually measured in hours. While the diameter of Venus is more than 3 times that of the Moon, Venus appears smaller, and travels more slowly across the face of the Sun, because it is much farther away from Earth.
Transits of Venus are among the rarest of predictable astronomical phenomena. The latest transit of Venus has occurred on 5 and 6 June 2012. After 2012, the next transits of Venus will be in December 2117 and December 2125.
OK, I tahu ada yang malas nak baca panjang2 dalam english tu kan...I dengan baik hati nya bubuh dalam bahasa Melayu sekali --> Fenomena Transit Planet Zuhrah - 6 Jun 2012 (semalam) : Objek tompok hitam kecil adalah Planet Zuhrah manakala objek paling besar adalah matahari. Planet Zuhrah ini sebenarnya hampir sama saiz dengan Bumi. Namun, disebabkan ia berada amat jauh dari Bumi, ia hanya akan kelihatan seperti sebuah bulatan hitam yang bergerak melintasi hadapan matahari.

The Venus is visible during the transit as a small black dot on the Sun's disk. Venus will be only 3% of the diameter of the Sun, so very small. It will be an intensely black spot in contrast to the bright solar disk which will make it stand out.
