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.
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.
I'll be in meetings all day, but I'd ask folks who read this thread to post some links to pictures and clips that have been archived of this.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.)
i didn't get any pictures of it... i only caught about the last 20 minutes of the transit, so i just wanted to enjoy it and not have to fiddle faddle
with my cameras. it was amazing though, truely beautiful.
