Venus in Transit
This painting tells the story of a time when Venus was visible to all of us. We aren't able to see the planets Mercury and Venus with our naked eye. Except, when they transit by passing in front of the sun.
"On June 5, 2012, SDO collected images of the rarest predictable solar event—the transit of Venus across the face of the Sun. This event lasted approximately six hours and happens in pairs eight years apart, which are separated from each other by 105 or 121 years. The last transit was in 2004 and the next will not happen until 2117." (Source: NASA)
