Is Venus Size Important?

There is something you can see today or forget it, unless you’ll be alive until 2117.

It’s the Venus Transit Eclipse.  For about two hours today starting at 6:03 until sunset, Venus will pass between Earth and The Sun. It will block out a small circle of light and that shadowing is actually Venus. The spot will travel across the face of the Sun and will be used by astronomers as a device to gauge the actual size of  remote Earth like planets.

The experts say that this will help them learn more about our tiny planet based on distance and size.

New England is experiencing cloudy, rainy weather , and you will most likely have to go to one of two websites to get a view.
