We all have heard of solar Eclipse or lunar Eclipse but this is something new called Venus transit. Transit is when mercury or Venus comes between the earth and the sun. Venus transit is when venus will come in between the earth and the sun. This will leave a small shadow on the sun. It will be visible between 5.31am to 10.22am. It is not very prominent like solar eclipse but it is a rare phenomenon which has a pattern of 105.5, 8, 121.5 and 8 years making a basic cycle of 243 years.
