during transit of Venus is 24 million miles from Earth . It is about 40 times the mass of the Moon . Also be 100 times farther than the moon , and since leaving the gravitational effects by the square of the distance which means Venus will have a gravitational effect 40/10 , 000, or April 1000 / or 1250 / the effect of the Moon . Not even enough to raise a perceptible wave at high tide . You could easily have worked this out for yourself

Earthquakes happen every day , regardless of planetary transits .

Seeing as eclipses between Earth , the Moon and the Sun does not seem to cause this kind of problem , I'm not sure why one would imagine Venus (which exerts less gravitational force on Earth is the Moon or the Sun ) could have that effect .

I have no idea what you mean by the eclipse of Venus . There are solar eclipses and lunar eclipses . Neither has anything to do with Venus . If Venus passes between the Earth and the Sun is called a transit. A transit lock a very small amount of sunlight . He will not noticeably darker on Earth , though.

Transits of Venus occur frequently in astronomical terms , in pairs eight years to a hundred years apart. We have seen several since the invention of the telescope and not once has reached the duck

No, the two things are not connected at all!
It's happened before and we are all fine.

I'm guessing you are talking about the transit of Venus which is when the planet Venus gets in between us and the sun. The next one will occur June 5-6 2012. It's hardly what you would call an eclipse in the normal sense. The sun will appear almost indistinguishable unless you are looking at it with a solar filter, in which case you will see a tiny dot cross it's surface.

The transits of Venus are pretty rare, they occur in a pattern that repeats every 243 years, where a pair of transits occur 8 years apart and then not again for another 100+ years.

The last transit was June 8, 2004. Before that the transits were December 1874 and December 1882. Before that they occurred in 1761 and 1769. If you look at the list of largest earthquakes, you will notice that none of them occurred during these dates. The closest was the Great Sumatran earthquake in 2004 that occurred half a year after the 2004 transit of Venus.

So there is no convincing evidence that Venus transiting the sun has any effect on the plate tectonics of Earth. If you think about it, Venus is pretty far away, and it's gravitational effect on earth is negligible. So its hard to even hypothesize an effect it would have.

Eclispses do not work that way!
