    Interesting enough that Venus should transit the Sun on the 8th June. Odder still that on the same day a group of 2000 Royalists should gather outside Paris

      Interesting enough that Venus should transit the Sun on the 8th June.  Odder still that on the same day a group of 2000 Royalists should gather outside Paris to bury the heart of the "Lost Dauphin".  See http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/europe/3788067.stm
       
      It was on the 8th June 1794 that Robespierre led a procession through Paris celebrating the "Festival of the Supreme Being".  Perhaps this is all no more than coincidental.
