Transit of Venus

Posted by karne (3rd Jun 2004, 17:36)

On tuesday from 6 to 12:30 AM (London time) Venus will transit across the sun. It should be visible as a small black dot through eclipse glasses, smoked glass or a pin hole camera (obviously don't look at the sun with unprotected eyes!) Lets hope it's a clear day!
