Venus Transit happens when Earth, Venus and Sun are align together.

During the transit, Venus can be seen from the Earth as a small black disk moving across the face of the Sun.

I used the Microsoft PowerPoint to illustrate how the Transit of Venus happens.

It is a very rare event to be able to see Venus passing across the face of the sun.

Venus Transits currently recur at intervals of 8, 105.5, 8 and 121.5 years.

In Malaysia we can see the transit begins with contact I at 06:09:29 am, reach the maximum phase at 09:29:28 am and finally the transit ends at contact IV at 12:49:57 pm.

The transit will can be seen from the West to the East.

Most of North America sees the beginning of the transit in the afternoon and evening on June 5, whereas much of Eurasia sees the end of the transit in the morning  on June 6, 2012.

WARNING: Viewing the Sun without safety filters can cause a permanent eye damage or blindness!

The map shows where and when the Venus Transit can be seen.
