Transit of Mayans

A coworker pointed out the the cycle of the current Mayan calendar ends during the next transit of Venus. Well, sort of. The transit occurs on 6 June 2012 and the Mayan calendar ends either on 21 December 2012 or 23 December 2012 (depending on two different correlations).

The end of the calendar isn't the end of time, rather the beginning of a new cycle.
