LIVE: Footage of Venus Transit (Plus Space Jams)

Categories: Outdoors

No need to break a sweat or severely damage your vision this afternoon, members of The Exploratorium are hosting a live webcast of Venus' transit across the Sun from Hawaii's Mauna Loa Observatory.

The webcast has a live telescope feed to the tune of audio commentary every 30 minutes and a sound composition being created from the video of the transit in real time. It's expected to last about 6.5 hours (beginning at 22:00 UT).

Check out the live webcast here.

I didn't get to see this up close and personal, but I did watch some of it online and I have seen several images online. This is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity. What boggles my mind is the size... to think that the sun is that BIG... crazy. Maybe with advances in technology we will all be here to see the next one. I would love to be able to see into the future to see the size of the sun, as compared to the size this year.
