Looking at that chart, it looks like this is the last of 'frequent' passes. The next one isn't until 2032. While past recent transits were more frequent.

BTW, I absolutely love your posts and your website.

Glad you're appreciative, Ginger. I assumed that you knew how to protect your eyes, but there's always someone needing a reminder. Looking forward to your report of the event.
