Transit of Venus

The astronomers among us should like this: a reanimation of the 1882 transit of Venus from 147 still images taken by David Peck Todd. The next transit of Venus will occur on June 8, 2004; it will be completely visible in parts of Europe, Africa, and Asia, will only be partially visible in the eastern US, and those of us here in the western US will miss it completely.
