Watch out for the Venus Transit

Venus transit of 2012 :

This time its literary once in a lifetime event.

Venus transits occur in pairs that are eight years apart, but these dual events take place less than once per century. The last transit happened in 2004, and the next won't come until 2117. So next month's transit is the last chance for skywatchers to see Earth's so-called sister planet trek across the solar disk.

Dont miss it if weather permits. There are less chances to see from Mumbai as the sky is mostly covered in clouds in June. Lets hope for the best :)
