    A couple months back, Walter Nissen pointed out a curiosity about the date of
    the Venus transit, that I've not heard mentioned anyone mention since.

    Greetings, all,
    
    Probably you remember the cheer, "2, 4, 6, 8, who do we appreciate?".  On
    2004-06-08, the small number of observers of transits of Venus, now all
    long-dead, will be remembered as Venus once again transits the Sun.  This will
    be a Sunrise event for the northeastern US.
    
    Thomas Fly has prepared an extensive treatment of the prospect that ISS may be
    observed transitting the planet and/or the Sun during the transit of Venus
    across the Sun.
    
    Some of you may wish to look in at
    http://iss-transit.sourceforge.net/IssVenusTransit.html
    
    Cheers.
    Walter Nissen
