2004-2012: the transits of Venus
The partnerships between high schools, schools or amateurs groups for the transits of Venus
  • The sites of observation should be chosen very carefully in order to get useful observations and a precise result. The information sheet n06 provides the information necessary to choose the best partnership (in french).
  • After two observations will be made, the calculation of the distance Earth-Sun will be possible using simplified formulae.
    The information sheet n05a provides a simplified method with examples. The information sheet n05b allows to calculate easily the distance Earth-Sun.
