Venus crossing the sun in Reykjavik, Iceland

Weather Reykjavík, Iceland - 05 June 2012

The transit of Venus across the sun is one of the rarest celestial sights visible from Earth, one that wowed scientists and amateur observers around the world on June 5, 2012). The event, arguably the most anticipated skywatching display of the year, marked the last time Venus will cross the sun (as seen from Earth) for 105 years.
