Despite cloud cover and rain, New Yorkers grabbed their pinhole cameras and joined in the streets to watch one of the rarest, but predictable astronomical phenomena; the Transit of Venus. Beginning at 6:04pm, residents had about two hours to view the spectacle before the Sun set.
If you missed Venus’ trek across the Sun because you were stuck in the office or didn’t get a good look because of the cloud coverage, chances are you won’t be able to see it again. The next Transit of Venus won’t occur for another 105 years.
Luckily it’s 2012 and technology is amazing. NASA documented the event and posted a time-lapse video of the Transit of Venus, meaning you won’t have to wait until the 22nd Century to see it again. But let’s be honest, in one hundred years we probably won’t be able to see ten feet in front of ourselves. You know, because of pollution and everything.
