So, today, right now actually, Venus is transiting the sun. 
This means Venus is between the Earth and the Sun. If it were big enough, or close enough, we'd have a solar eclipse. 

It's an event that happens in pairs, with a 8 year interval between them. The first one happened in June 2004. It will only happen again in December 2117 and December 2125.
