While thousands of shielded eyes, curious to have a watch at one of the rarest celestial event, The Venus Transit, this man Linton's Terry Smith pointed his camera up in the sky and captured a fabulous glimpse.
Believe it or not, this photo depicts such a class, that no one would have ever seen one such like this. This image is captured in such a way that no one this planet living would have seen photo like this.
The photo depicted the orange sphere of the sun, covered by partly by black clouds and crossed by a black dot, which was the planet Venus.
Smith explained, “I've been an amateur astronomer for a long time. I used a solar cover on my spy scope, and I've done that before. Every now and again, I can catch sun spots in photos”.
It has been recovered that the rare celestial event occurs, when planet Venus passes directly between the sun and earth.
Transits of Venus are among the rarest of predictable astronomical phenomena. They occur in a pattern that repeats every 243 years, with pairs of transits eight years apart separated by long gaps of 121.5 years and 105.5 years. This was the last transit of 21st century, with next to be in December 2117, and in December 2125.
