The One When Venus Crossing the Sun 

It is interesting to learn that thousands Malaysians flooded to National Planetarium to see Venus crossing the Sun, a rare phenomenon called Transit of Venus, which occur in pairs, eight years apart. Each pair is separated by long gaps of, alternately, 121 years and 105 years. Yesterday's transit was only the seventh since Galileo's invention of the telescope in 1609, and the first since 1882. It will recur again in the early morning of 2012, but not after that until 2117.. Worth enough to queue under the hot sun to see a large orange ball through giant telescopes.

Muhammad Fairoz Asillam, the science officer in charge of the event, said: "Even with our large 14-inch telescope, Venus could only be seen as a black dot moving across the sun as the sun itself is so large and bright that it makes Venus look small and insignificant. The sun is seen as a huge glowing orange ball.''

It is also interesting to learn previous Venus-sun transit have been linked to the destruction of Mayan and Inca culture by the Spanish and Portuguese expansion in 1518 and 1526. Astrologers also believe those born under Zodiac signs Aries, Scorpio, Leo and Virgo were afflicted by Venus.

Astrologer Madam Zorra said Venus was retrograding and showing 'her negative face that is cold and cruel.' "My advice to those who are afflicted by Venus is that they should control any erratic emotion," she said.
p/s: Madam Zorra, are you sure u meant erratic, and not erotic? hehe.. *wink*
