Publication Date: 6/1/2012
Astronomers, physicists and other interested individuals are preparing to view planet Venus pass directly between the sun and earth on June 5. This rare alignment occurs in pairs that are eight years apart but separated by over a century. The last transit of Venus was in 2004 and after June 5, the next one occurs in 2117.
Recently ABC24 News Reporter Randy Wimbley interviewed Dr. David Rupke, assistant professor of physics at Rhodes, about the transit of Venus. View here.
