Venus Transit 2012

The 2012 transit of Venus, when the planet Venus, appeared as a small dark disk moving across the face of the Sun began at 22:09 UTC on June 5, 2012 and finished at 4:49 UTC on June 6, 2012. Depending on the position of the observer, the exact times varied up to seven minutes. Transits of Venus are among the rarest of predictable celestial phenomena and occur in pairs, eight years apart, which are themselves separated by more than a century. The previous transit of Venus took place on June 8, 2004 (preceded by the pair of appearances on December 9, 1874 and December 6, 1882) and the next pair of transits will occur on December 10-11, 2117 and in December, 2125.
