The Transit Of Venus

Your one and only chance to see Venus transit the face of the sun. Stay tuned for what’s happening at PDS.

It won’t happen again until December 2117. On June 5th, 2012, Venus will transit the face of the sun in an event of both historical and observational importance. The best places to watch are in the south Pacific, but travel is not required. The event will also be visible around sunset from the USA.

Transit of Venus.org is a good resource for the event, including pretty exacting information about safety and methods for viewing.
