Venus Transit


Get ready for the VENUS TRANSIT this year on June 5-6.

If you miss it you'll have to wait until 2117.

The transits occur when the sun, Earth and Venus all line up and, from our vantage point, we see Venus as a tiny black spot slowly moving across the fiery bright solar disk.

SAFETY WARNING: Never, ever look directly at the sun with binoculars, a telescope or any other form of magnifying apparatus. Irreparable damage may be caused to your eyesight.

Observing Tips :

1. It's possible to safely view the transit by projecting an image of it through binoculars or a telescope onto white card.

2.Use special eclipse glasses.
