Observe the Transit of Venus

Date: Tuesday June 05, 2012

Time: 5:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Museum of Science and History (MOSH)
1025 Museum Circle
Jacksonville, FL 32207

MOSH, the Northeast Florida Astronomical Society (NEFAS) and FSCJ are partnering to give visitors a special opportunity to view the transit of Venus from the museum’s rooftop and the Bryan-Gooding Planetarium. This rare astronomical event occurs when Venus passes directly between the earth and sun.  There have been only seven transits of Venus since the invention of the telescope and the next one will not occur until 2117.  Solar telescopes will be stationed on MOSH’s rooftop and individual solar viewers may be purchased for $1.  Live video of the transit will stream in the Bryan-Gooding Planetarium.  Access to the rooftop and planetarium are included with admission but space is limited.
