Tue05 More information on the upcoming transit of the Sun by Venus

animation of the transit - Venus Transit of the Sun

On June 5th, 2012, Venus will pass across the face of the sun, producing a silhouette that no one alive today will likely see again.

Transits of Venus are very rare, coming in pairs separated by more than a hundred years. This June's transit, the bookend of a 2004-2012 pair, won't be repeated until the year 2117. Fortunately, the event is widely visible. Observers on seven continents, even a sliver of Antarctica, will be in position to see it.

The nearly 7-hour transit begins at 3:09 pm Pacific Daylight Time (22:09 UT) on June 5th. The timing favors observers in the mid-Pacific where the sun is high overhead during the crossing. In the USA, the transit will be at its best around sunset. That's good, too. Creative photographers will have a field day imaging the swollen red sun "punctured" by the circular disk of Venus.good resource - http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/sunearth/news/2012-venus-transit.html

Well, I killed my jade plant. I did get it to bloom a few times before it died.

I thought this was pretty neat.
 
Very cool way of looking at the universe!
Zoom from the edge of the universe to the quantum foam of spacetime and learn about everything in between.

Will you be celebrating Saint Patrick’s Day? If so, take a second to remember these great innovators.
Scientists and inventors may not be the first things that come to mind with the upcoming Saint Patrick's Day holiday. The day is usually associated with four-leaf clovers, leprechauns, performers ...

I went here for breakfast and got good food, but my battery went dead while I was there. Some young man who worked there, I wish I got his name, called his dad to come and give me a jump. The father wouldn't even accept any money when he got my car started. I am really thankful for their help and they really changed something that could have bad experience into a good one.

Love this place! Puerta Vallarta on the south side of town is exactly the same as this restaurant.

This is a must try place. Small but great salad bar. The "lunch special" is a great deal and is served all day. You get a drink, trip to the salad bar, and a small pizza for cheap. I hear their french dressing is perfect.
