On Tuesday (5 June) and early Wednesday (6 June) in Asia, people from all the around the world turned their attention to the daytime sky in an attempt to witness a rare astronomical sight -- Venus passing through the Sun. STOMPers mickey and AnimalLover share what they've seen.
This transit occurs when the orbits of Venus and the Earth align with the sun, and the sight happens only four times every 243 years.
STOMPer mickey shares:
"I was amongst the more than 1,000 people who were gathered on a field at the National University of Singapore.
"From 6:15 a.m. local time Venus could be seen travelling across the sun as a small black dot.
"Six hours later, the black dot slowly made its exit.
"To everyone who witnessed this phenomena, share your photos!"
STOMPer AnimalLover says:
"I was just staring into space when my little sister spotted the reddish moon.
"I am not very sure if it is an eclipse."
