Absolutely fascinating!

I found this link for finding from what locations it can be seen.

And this link shows the time from which it can be seen from your location.

Ian and I have ordered eclipse glasses for seeing them. I am excited!

Oh, Poppycock. We all know that the Earth is the center of the universe, and everything revolves around us. Venus transiting the sun would fly in the face of reality.

It's just a theory. And it can't be proven. And I'm not going to believe the science behind it, even if those phony-baloney scientists say they CAN prove it. I'm not going to even try to understand it. I'm just going to belittle those sciencey-types every chance I get. When the sun RISES in the East and sets in the West, just like it has ALWAYS done, I'm going to say, "Where's your heliocentric model now, Nicoli?"

My little mind cannot grasp the concept, so it must be a lie. No, worse than a lie. A conspiracy! Yes, that's what it is. A conspiracy to swindle us right-thinking Earth-centric true-believers out of our hard-earned ducats.
