A close up of the June 5, 2012, Venus transit of the sun. It is a rare event which occurs twice every 100 years or so, the last being 2004 and the next in the 22nd Century in about 105 years. The other dark marks are sunspots. They are areas of cool storm-like convections which appear dark because they are so much cooler that the 11,000 degree Fahrenheit surface of the sun. The largest of them are much bigger than the Earth. The sun is undergoing a sunspot maximum in an eleven year cycle.
