    The orbit of Venus is tilted 3.4 degrees relative to Earth's orbit. The two places where they interesect are called nodes. A transit only happens when the two planets are lined up at a node. ©Mona Evans, "Transit of Venus - Measuring the Solar System" http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art28229.asp
