Hi.

About every eight Earth years (and five Venus synodic periods), Earth and Venus at the closest distance. During these eight years, there are four more inferior conjunctions (for the total of five), but the distance is slightly more than at the closest inferior conjunction.

My question is: Which of the recent Earth-Venus inferior conjunctions was (or will be) the closest?
