Transit of Venus Events and Resources (June 5)

(June 5)

The Sun-Earth Day and NASA EDGE Teams will bring the Transit of Venus to the world from the summit of Mauna Kea in Hawaii. During a live webcast, the transit will be shown in high definition video through H-alpha, Calcium-K, and White Light telescopes. Coverage will consist of video of the transit, interviews with scientists and Native Hawaiians, and question and answer sessions.

Resources are available on the website for use in museum events and classroom participation, including videos providing cultural and historical information about the transit. Promotional materials include bookmarks, wallpapers, and a flier that can easily be downloaded from the website. A Google map is also available, to see where events are happening, and where you can submit your own event. For more information, visit http://1.usa.gov/H1raix.
