On June 5 - 6 this year, curious eyes can catch a glimpse of the beautiful planet of Venus. Named after the roman goddess of love and beauty, Venus is the second planet from the sun after mars. So what makes Venus so special?, well apart from having similar characteristics to earth such as size, gravity and it's composition it is also the 3rd brightest natural object in the night sky after the sun and moon. As a result of its brightness, every 243years (in pairs of 8years) when Venus gets round the sun to the point where it crosses the earth, one can catch a glimpse of this bright and beautiful planet of love and beauty. This is a rare historical event occurring in your lifetime and not to be missed. So mark the date and escort Venus across earth.
