Transit of Venus 2012

On 5th-6th June, it is your last chance to witness one of the rarest predictable events in astronomy – the planet Venus will pass across the face of the Sun. This event, called a transit, will not occur again until December 2117. Transits occur in pairs eight years apart, separated by 121.5 and 105.5 years. The contemporary footage and photos in this video were taken during the 2004 transit, which was best seen from Europe, Africa and Asia. The 2012 transit will be best seen from east Asia and Australasia, but it will be visible as the sun sets across the whole of North America, and as the sun rises in Europe. Venus will appear as a black dot on the Sun, and will take more than six and a half hours to cross the face. It will not cause noticable dimming of the Sun’s light, so appropriate eye protection must be used while observing the transit, to prevent damage to the eyes.

The Survival Game (PBS Documentary)

Please Subscribe To The Evolution Documentary YouTube Channel: www.youtube.com Broadcast (2002) Behind the beautiful shapes and colors of seashells is the story of how a group of animals called molluscs evolved in order to survive. The wide variety of molluscs includes clams, oysters, snails, mussels, squid, and octopus. The word mollusc comes from Latin meaning “soft,” a good description of the group’s fleshy bodies. Of course, in an ocean filled with predators, a soft body is easily eaten. The early molluscs that happened to develop hard shells not only managed to survive but also succeeded in launching an ever escalating 500 million year old battle between themselves and their predators. Molluscs have survived throughout the millennia by having an immensely adaptable body plan. The ancestors of Nautilus evolved buoyant shells, a trait that allowed them to launch off the seafloor and become successful swimming predators known as cephalopods. As each generation struggled against increasingly clever predators like vertebrates, the cephalopods accumulated more and more sophisticated innovations through evolution. One adaptation lay in speed. In creatures such as squid, the shell became smaller, moved inside the body and all but vanished. Another adaptation lay in brainpower. Octopuses and cuttlefish think, learn and react to their environments in ways surpassed only by vertebrates. If you have a soft body in the middle of the ocean, being clever will help survival. A

Why do questions asked that contain the number 2012 get placed in Astronomy automatically?

A question about Obama running for re-election in 2012 was placed in A&S automatically by Yahoo. That just makes it obvious that the question was auto-categorized for the Astronomy category just because the question dealt with the year 2012.

My question is, why do the Yahoo admins waste the time of the Astronomy board answerers with 2012 doomsday questions? Any question that contains the number 2012 is placed there, which is stupid, because doomsdays have nothing to do with the observation of celestial phenomena.

2012 questions belong in Mythology & Folklore.
