did you miss the once-in-our-lifetime transit of Venus? we were lucky enough to see it! this rare occurence isn't going to happen for another 105 years. to put that into perspective, if you had a child today, and your child had a child in 25 years, your grandchild will be 80 the next time Venus makes another transit. CRAZY!!!
These images really put our world into perspective since Venus is an Earth-sized planet. We're just a tiny speck. I took some screenshots from NASA's website, one of a very excited scientist, and a sweet full-size picture from space.com.
