Venus Dots the Sun

Tuesday, June 5th, 2012

It’s not too late to make a shoebox pinhole camera and enjoy the wonders of watching Venus pass by the face of the Sun. Here’s an easy video about how to quickly make a pinhole camera. I just made mine! Ready for action at 6:09 P.M. EST.

Don’t miss this. It’s an interesting phenomenon. Each century, it’s visible twice, 8 years apart. You may have witnessed it in 2004. Next time this is visible is in 2117. It’s a relatively clear evening here in Kentucky. Nine more minutes!
