Eye-Safety And The Transit Of Venus

I was sent this link a while back, and since there’s naturally questions about “how to view the transit safely”, I thought I’d post  a link to this before I head out next Wednesday to help people check it out.

 To observe the transit of Venus directly you must protect your eyes at all times with proper solar filters. However, do not let the requisite warnings scare you away from witnessing this rare spectacle. You can experience the transit of Venus safely, provided you use proper eye protection.

If you’d like to read (rather than watch the video) the Six Ways To View The Transit Of Venus Safely, the full post is featured here.

    Cheers for this. :-)

    Will probably be viewing from this years Cytherean transit from the Adelaide Festival Theatre with the South Aussie Astronomical Society.

    Weather permitting.

    Clear skies and best wishes y’all.
