Live Venus Transit
Live Venus Transit, Transit of Venus is underway right now and you have still time to watch it. This is one of the most talked about issue among not just sky-watchers and astronomers but for even common men and women. The occasion seems to have been given extensive coverage in international media in almost all part of the world.
NASA, like every-time in the past, has made great arrangements to bring the occasion live to you. Even now you can watch the Venus transit live on your computers and laptops if you login to their website. Besides sending astronauts to space and helping Spacex send its small spaceship into space, NASA has tried to ensure that people around the world and especially in the US are able to experience the occasion with as much ease as possible.
But in many areas of the world you have still time to watch the Venus transit yourself too. Just make it sure that you have good quality solar filter glasses before going out and try to watch it. Please remember that the next Venus transit will not occur before 2117. So instead of waiting for eternity make it sure that you watch it from your own eyes.
Experts warn that you should never ever watch the sun when it is being eclipsed. A report says, “Always be aware of the power of the sun. Yes, it obviously can fry your eyes without your knowing it, for your eyeball has no pain receptors within. But there are other burn hazards. Keith Johnson of the Fleischmann Planetarium shares this story: “Just to underscore the necessity of keeping constant watch on your telescope while it’s pointed at the Sun… I was running a basic astronomy class lab in Tucson while I was in grad school one day, and we were observing the Sun with a white-light filter. I had placed a film container over the finder as usual. But apparently not firmly enough: it fell off at one point, and I didn’t notice it”. (Huffington Post)
