How Venus Eclipse Happens
On May 16, 2010, people in most regions in the world have seen a very
rare natural phenomenon. It was Venus eclipse. It was very rare amazing
natural event. It was reported that the Venus eclipse will seen again in
the future in 2050. Do you know how this rare Venus eclipse happens?
Well, actually Venus eclipse is like Sun eclipse. Venus eclipses occurs
when the position of the earth, moon and Venus is parallel. Venus planet
will slowly disappear for a moment because it is covered the surface of
the Moon. Venus planet seems to move to the back side of the Moon.
The moon and planets are sharing a similar apparent path in the sky.
That is why, it is not unusual for the moon to appear to pass close to
Venus. In fact, the moon appears somewhere near it about once a month.
However, most people don’t see these events because they are visible in
the evening sky only half the time, and then only for a short period
after sunset. The apparent closeness varies from month to month as well.
