Last Chance to View Venus Transiting the Sun for Another 100 Years Happens Next Week

If you enjoy watching stars and planets as they crossed the night time or daytime sky as the case may be, you want to keep an eye out next Tuesday. Venus will be transiting the sun, which means the planet is passing between the Earth and the sun.

Venus will appear as a black dot on the surface of the sun, assuming you have a special glasses needed to view the sun without hurting your eyes. The last time Venus transited the sun was in 2004, which is when this photograph was taken. This will be the last time Venus will transit the Sun for over 100 years. The next transit will be 2117, and most of us will be dead.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
