A visually spectacular guide to the history, science and significance of Venus's rare transits across the sun-- the perfect companion to the transit on June 5, 2012 (the last one until 2117). A transit of Venus is one of the rarest and most historically significant planetary alignments-- since the invention of the telescope in 1608, there have been only seven.
