Venus transient to Sun for the first time in over a century!

Venus is going to be transient with the sun tomorrow at dawn for the first time since 1882.. neat! Wonder if I'll be up then: Have to use a telescope and shine the light on something white , er, like a white car : and then you can see the black dot of venus trying to eclipse the sun.

Then this will happen again in 8 years, and then not again for over a century! It has to do with how the earth & venus orbit the sun, I find it rather fascinating.
