About the Venus Transits:
In 1874, and again in 1882, Venus passed across the face of the Sun. These events, known as Transits of Venus, occur in pairs more than a century apart – the previous transits had occured in 1761 and 1769, and the most recent pair happened in 2004 and 2012. Observing the transits of Venus has been used to calculate the distance of the Earth from the Sun.
