WHEN VENUS TRANSITS THE SUN
In June 2012, Venus moved in front of the Sun. (Move in front of it from our perspective.) One of the decade's most highly anticipated astronomical events, this transit offered us the last opportunity to observe the second planet moving across the Sun's face for more than a century. The next transit occurs in December 2117.
The "Transit of Venus" omni-dome program focuses on the transit dynamics. How does it happen? Why is it so rare? This show also takes us back to the 18th century to discuss how astronomers determined the Sun's distance with observations of a previous transit
