Transit of Venus | Time, Visibility, Live Webcast Coverage

GEOCENTRIC TIME OF THE TRANSIT’S MOST IMPORTANT EVENTS

 

  • Contact I (Venus disk is externally tangent to the Sun) > 22:09:38 UT Position Angle 41°
  • Contact II (Venu is internally tangent to the Sun) > 22:27:34 UT Position Angle 38°
  • Greatest (instant when Venus passes closest to the Sun’s center) > 01:29:36 Position Angle 345°
  • Contact III (Venus reaches opposite limb & once again internally tangent to the Sun) > 04:31:39 Position Angle 293°

VISIBILITY

SEARCH YOUR LOCAL CIRCUMSTANCES

NASA’s website prepared two spreadsheets files that can perform calculations for any geographic position. Simply enter the location name, latitude and longitude. Each of the tables then calculates the altitude of the Sun at that location for every contact and for every transit in the table. See the tables towards the end of the page at ‘Local Circumstances for Transit of Venus’
