Caption: The black drop effect can be seen just before 3rd contact as the planet Venus transits the Suns disk as seen in white light on June 8, 2004 at 7:05:58 am EDT from Batsto, New Jersey. A transit occurs when Venus passes in front of the Sun as seen from Earth. This is the first transit since 1882. Venus transits occur in pairs separated by eight years, with alternating intervals of 121.5 and 104.5 years in between pairs. Only Mercury and Venus can transit the Sun as seen from Earth.
