So, did you catch the transit of Venus yesterday? If you did, you witnessed a once-in-a-lifetime event, something that won’t happen again until 2117.
I didn’t get to see it, myself; I was left in a stupor after witnessing Nintendo’s E3 conference. Stupefied. I didn’t have the proper equipment, anyway, so I can’t complain.
Luckily, however, there’s an app for that. Or, rather, a simulator.
Head on over to SunAeon’s Transit of Venus 2012 simulator to see what you missed. It’s a short, virtual representation of the entire transit, which takes into account your location and local time (at the time the transit actually occurred), and even outlines Venus’s trajectory. It’s definitely worth a look.
Or, if you’re particularly stubborn, you could just wait for the next, real transit of Venus.
Only 105 years, 186 days, and 23 hours to go!
