Abstract: 

THE TRANSIT OR PASSAGE OF A PLANET ACROSS THE FACE OF THE SUN IS A RELATIVELY RARE OCCURRENCE. AS SEEN FROM EARTH, ONLY TRANSITS OF MERCURY AND VENUS ARE POSSIBLE. IN CONTRAST, TRANSITS OF VENUS OCCUR IN PAIRS WITH MORE THAN A CENTURY SEPARATING EACH PAIR. NO LIVING PERSON HAS SEEN A TRANSIT OF VENUS BECAUSE THE MOST RECENT ONE OCCURRED IN 1882. THE VENUS TRANSIT 2004 WHICH LAST ABOUT 6 HOURS WAS THE BEST CHANCE TO RECALCULATE ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT CONSTANTS IN ASTRONOMY, ASTRONOMICAL UNIT (AVERAGE DISTANCE BETWEEN SUN AND EARTH) AND DETERMINATION OF ERRORS. IN ADDITION, MEASURING THE RADIUS OF VENUS' ORBIT, THE RADIUS OF THE EARTH AND THE ANGULAR RADIUS OF THE SUN AND DETERMINING OF THE OWN GEOGRAPHICAL COORDINATES ARE POSSIBLE BY OBSERVING THE TRANSIT AND RELATED CALCULATIONS.
