On June 5/6, 2012, the planet Venus crossed the face of the Sun. This event, called a transit, was seen across the Earth by people who viewed it in person as well as online live

it! I chose the images in this gallery because they made me smile, they made me laugh, and they made me proud of how wonderful the Universe is, and how we humans appreciate it.All these pictures are used by permission.
