Transit of Venus

This a NASA photo of the planet Venus (which is only slightly smaller than the Earth) as it passes over the sun. If you didn’t see it today then you have to wait another 105 years for your next chance.

The sun is much much further away than Venus, just shows how small the planets are in comparison with the sun.
