On¬†6th¬†June from sunrise to about 09:30 AM Venus¬†will pass through the disk¬†of¬†our sun. Our resident astronomer¬†Umair¬†Asim¬†will live broadcast it through¬†Khwarizmi¬†Science Society’s Channel of¬†Night Skies Network¬†using¬†sophsticated¬†Halpha¬†solar filters and and a¬†C14¬†Scope.

For most living humans June 5/6, 2012 will be their last chance to see Venus cross in front of the Sun. The last transit of Venus occurred in 2004, but after this June the world will have to wait until 2117 for the next one.

This historic viewing will also give us a chance of measuring the earth-sun distance. So keep in touch with us.
