Venus Transit: Between Earth and a Hot Place | Video

The Morning Star appears to pass across the face of the Sun at regular intervals of 8, 121.5 and 105.5 years. In 2004, NASA's TRACE spacecraft captured the event and in June 2012 humans will see the last transit before the pair in 2117 and 2125.
