Diamond Jubilee

I'm watching the Today show featuring Queen Elizabeth II's Diamond Jubilee and love it all. It's always great to see positive events in the world especially at the time of the lunar eclipse and Venus Transit - Venus the archetype for the Goddess and the Queen. Queen Liz, 86, looks great and not ready to step down. Maybe she's the British version of Betty White. It's all about and great sense of humor, positive attitude, money and power.

2012 Venus Transit

The transit starts just after 6 PM today (EDST)

There are pseudoscience theories about the eight-year pentagonal cycle of Venus. Some believe that a doorway opened during the Venus Transit on June 8, 2004 closing on June 6, 2012. Others link it to the Goddess Venus and her return to create a new reality.

A Picturesque Venus Transit   NASA - June 3, 2012

The rare transit of Venus across the face of the Sun in 2004 was one of the better-photographed events in sky history. Both scientific and artistic images flooded in from the areas that could see the transit: Europe and much of Asia, Africa, and North America. Scientifically, solar photographers confirmed that the black drop effect is really better related to the viewing clarity of the camera or telescope than the atmosphere of Venus. Artistically, images might be divided into several categories. One type captures the transit in front of a highly detailed Sun. Another category captures a double coincidence such as both Venus and an airplane simultaneously silhouetted, or Venus and the International Space Station in low Earth orbit. A third image type involves a fortuitous arrangement of interesting looking clouds, as shown by example in the above image taken from North Carolina, USA. Sky enthusiasts worldwide are abuzz about the coming transit of Venus on Tuesday. It is perhaps interesting to wonder whether any person will live to see -- and remember seeing -- both Tuesday's Venus transit and the next one in 2117.

Venus Transit   Spaceweather.com - June 3, 2012

Venus is approaching the sun in advance of the June 5th Transit of Venus. From here on Earth, the second planet has become difficult to see wrapped in bright sunlight. The Solar and Heliospheric Observatory, however, has no such trouble. SOHO's onboard coronagrah blocks the glare to reveal planets otherwise invisible:
