Why could i not see the recent (current when posted) solar eclipse shadow on earth within space engine? Will this be fixed in the next version? Just a minor gripe.

Sneadsta, SpaceEngineer said it is because of simplicity of the current model, it doesn't take into account the perturbations, so that orbits of satellites are inaccurate.
At least you can find a Venus transit at June 6th. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transit_of_Venus,_2012
