A timely reminder for those enquiries about the upcoming Transit of Venus:

An ASA Factsheet is available, describing the Transit of Venus on 6 June 2012.  It can be found on the ASA's Australian Astronomy web site (http://www.astronomy.org.au).  The specific link is: http://www.astronomy.org.au/ngn/engine.php?SID=1000011&AID=100326 .  The sheet may be freely copied for wide distribution provided the Australian Astronomy and ASA logos are retained.

This information is provided by Nick Lomb (Sydney Observatory) and Martin George (Launcestion Planetarium) as initiative of the ASA Education and Public Outreach Chapter.  Nick also has a book out on the subject - see http://www.sydneyobservatory.com.au/2011/transit-of-venus-the-book/
