NASA - Venus Transit Video Challenge by Tongal

June 7, 2012

On June 5th at 6:09 EDT Venus will begin its 7-hour Transit across our Sun for the last time in our lifetime. The 2012 Venus Transit represents not only one of the RAREST astronomical events (occurring either 121.5 or 105.5 years apart), but also a historical snapshot of the technology and culture of the times. NASA wants you to take all this amazing footage and create Video Time Capsules that tell the story of this Transit to be used as a message to future citizens in 2117 as they get ready to watch the next Venus Transit. You will be able to check out the NASA TV live stream here on June 5th:
