I was reading an article in one of my favorite Islamic newspapers and was able to learn for the first time about the Venus transit which happens only every "250" years. The next viewing will be on 8 June 2004, don't miss it. I went online to read more about it and saw an animation view of the Venus transit that happened in 1882 via actual negatives from photos taken back then. Little thought is given on a majority scale about the body of the Universe and its movements. Why are the planets aligning? Did you read about Mercury's transit?
