Contacts (Source: Wikipedia)

There are four named “contacts” during a transit — moments when the circumference of Venus touches the circumference of the Sun at a single point:

1. First contact (external ingress): Venus is entirely outside the disk of the Sun, moving inward
2. Second contact (internal ingress): Venus is entirely inside the disk of the Sun, moving further inward
3. Third contact (internal egress): Venus is entirely inside the disk of the Sun, moving outward
4. Fourth contact (external egress): Venus is entirely outside the disk of the Sun, moving outward.

A fifth named point is that of greatest transit, when Venus is at the middle of its path across the solar disk and which marks the halfway point in the timing of the transit.

watch it live on NASA’s two shows running both at the same time.. cool to watch
