What I'd like to do here is post some of the weblinks to places that are monitoring the Venus transit.

Here's the SOHO site... we may be able to get some decent pictures here as it happens (and hopefully folks will capture some of the event images.)
beauty.nascom.nasa.gov...

Anybody else? I'd like to get a collection of resources here for the event.

Here's the SOHO perspective on the transit.
Venus is now entering view of Lasco C3 today too.

Thanks for the link to www.transit.csiro.au... Duke -- for those of you curious about the time, this Aussie site gives a countdown (11 hours to go, as I type this.) The SOHO site shows the planet creeping toward the sun's disk, but there's no estimate of time.

In the UK, the transit begins at about 9:25am and lasts until about 11:55am GMT.

SPACE STATION TRANSIT: Transits of Venus are rare, but this is unprecedented: The International Space Station (ISS) will cross the Sun four times during the 6-hour transit of Venus on June 8th. The double transit, Venus + the ISS, can only be seen from inside a narrow corridor about one mile wide. Four of these corridors criss-cross Europe, Africa and Asia.

Phil Plait, the "Bad Astronomer" (yes, he's a real astronomer) will be doing quite a few tv interviews on it today:

(take a look at his schedule for the interviews! Wowsers!!! He's going to be one very busy man today!)

NICE pictures coming in on Trondheim 1 and Trondheim 2. Most of the live feeds seem hammered by connections, but Norway's holding steady.

And it's HUGE on Trondheim 2

I'll be in meetings all day, but I'd ask folks who read this thread to post some links to pictures and clips that have been archived of this. I stayed awake until about 1 am and then went to bed (had to be at work early today.)

Which one of the objects around the sun is Venus at this link? Is it the one at around 12 o'clock or the one at around 7 o'clock?
