Dedicated Page: Night Skies Network
Registration: Open to all.
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.
In order to join this event, please logon to the Society’s channel on Night Skies Network! See you there.
