Venus Transit!!   Leave a comment

Are you missing thinking and planning about how and where to view the eclipse? It was amazing and we’d love to hear your stories and share pictures. But  now there’s something else to ponder and plan – the only transit of Venus until 2117! If you miss it, you won’t be alive to see the next one. (Unless you are a miracle of science.) And perhaps unlike the eclipse, most of the people reading this blog will be able to view the transit. Check out the below graph to see if you are some of the unfortunate few who will miss out:

So when do you want to view it?  For the US, it’s sunset.  For your local area and times, check out here:

In the Bay Area, it will start a little after 3 p.m. and end at almost 10 p.m.; when sadly, the Sun will be out of view because night will have fallen. Of course you must view it safely, so please review the safe eclipse watching post or visit http://www.transitofvenus.org/june2012/eye-safety for a refresher. More transit information will follow…
