Re: Earth does transits too!

As does the Moon!

"During the event, the Moon could almost always also be seen in transit, although due to the distance between Earth and Moon, sometimes one body completes the transit before the other begins (this last occurred in the 1800 transit, and will happen again in 2394). "

Also the Curiosity rover saw a transit of Mercury from Mars.
