Default 2012-06-5,6 Venus solar transit

OK next up on the astronomical photo opportunity agenda:

The previous pair of transits were in December 1874 and December 1882. After 2012, the next transits of Venus will be in December 2117 and December 2125

This will be visible over the day lit areas of the Earth that aren't obscured with clouds. The Western continental US, Canada and Mexico will see the first half of the transit before sunset. Hawaii and Alaska will get a few more hours.

Never argue with a fool. Onlookers often can't tell the difference.
Growing older is mandatory, growing up is optional.
My advice is free and worth every penny.
