Title: Venus transits
Post by frankuitaalst on 06/06/12 at 09:41:25

Haven't seen much here about the Venus transit today due to cloudy weather .
Hereby is an animation of the present transit and the two upcoming ones in 2117 and in 2125. I used the Picard integrator to do so .

This site gives a lot of interesting pictures and data .

Transits seem to come in pairs with a spacing of 8 years between two members of one pair .  The last one was in 2004 .
