Venus Did Indeed Transit The Sun! Report from the Planetarium

What this Traveler Saw the day much of the world turned away from their earthly concerns and considered the sky.

Early live feed in Hawaii at Chabot Planetarium in Oakland Ca. Venus is the small black dot at 1 o’clock. The Scientist were so excited by a light dot at the bottom that was a Sun spot. I was thrilled to see it on the big screen. Don’t worry I went out and looked, too.

Outside we were offered low-tec viewing devices while we waited for the big telescope.

Some folks created there own unique photo devises.

This is about what we were seeing through our glasses but without the captions and very small.

My crowd used the standard issue glasses to watch Venus do her Grand March across the Sun.

Viewing the 2012 Transit of Venus with this beautiful 100 year old telescope seemed the fitting way to experience an event that will not happen again for over 100 years.

Saying cheese and viewing…but really it gave me great joy to commune with the planet so closely associated with the Feminine!

Mind blowing view of the Live feed from Hawaii superimposed on the planetarium show. I was in awe! They even stopped talking and put on music which was my hearts desire.Β  I wonder what Galileo would think of this technology? Would he want music or talking?

  1. I wonder how many children were born during the transit. As a choice I would have picked silence, but between talking and music, music wins. It was an interesting day for sure. I am glad you enjoyed it.


    • Michel and Mae good points about being born yesterday. Venus conjunct the Sun would make them very creative and artistic. Maybe lucky enough to live over 100 years πŸ™‚
