HTGYG Show #130: The Venus Transit and 365 Days of Astronomy!

Copyright © 2012 McGill University

This summer, we have a wonderful opportunity for some great astronomy! In this episode, I discuss the Venus Transit, and play an episode of  365 Days of Astronomy by Dr. Christopher Crockett from the United States Naval Observatory.

Here’s our friend Laith’s blog with more info.  Here’s a post he put up on our site as well. Here’s CosmoQuest’s coverage page – here is where you can watch the transit live online in conjunction with Universe Today, and catch the video later if you missed it. And here’s a link to Neil Tyson’s Startalk Radio – they are replaying an episode about Venus and observing. Plus more resources for other astronomical events that you can catch here while the kids are out for the summer in the Northern Hemisphere.
