Wednesday 6th of June, what an amazing day it was. Here in Australia we got to see it from beginning to end. It happened around 8.00am and ended around 2.45pm. Where we live in Sydney we had the clouds covering the skies for most of the day, but when I did get a sunny chance, everynow and then,I saw the tiny planet, in comparison to the mighty sun, move across it very slowly. I did this by putting a white piece of cardboard infront of the sun and me looking at the reflection of the progress on the cardboard.
Venus transits since 1631:-
1631, 1639, 1761, 1769, 1874, 1882, 2004, 2012 and the next one would be in 2117.
The images that I took from my piece of cardboard were not very clear and so here are some images courtesy of:-
