All You Need to Know About the Transit of Venus
Venus will pass in front of the sun today, beginning around 6 p.m. EDT (2200 GMT) and ending at roughly 12:50 a.m. EDT (0450 GMT) Wednesday. We have you covered with all you need to know.
First of all, here’s a look at where you can view the historic event live without having to go out outdoors.
Discovery News Space Editor Ian O’Neill is co-hosting, along with Astronomers Without Borders Founder Mike Simmons, a special Venus transit event from the world famous Mt. Wilson Observatory. For the live stream, go here.
Here’s a look at the stages of the transit of Venus.
And instructions on how to take images of the event.
Finally, don’t forget to submit your pictures here (along with your name and where you took the image and at what time. You can also stay anonymous, if you want.) We plan to make a slideshow and post the images on this Tumblr.
Submit images here.
If I were at home I would be driving up to Mt. Wilson rn BUT it’s okay. Thank goodness it’s so-cal, we have alternatives (lol & JPL).
