Transit of Venus

With the upcoming Transit of Venus on June 5-6, 2012, many organizations have made available resources, including this short full dome video. The video is available from: http://solarsystem.nasa.gov/news/transitofvenus.cfm

The Transit of Venus is a free 4-minute video in high-resolution mini-show that summarizes the history and significance of the transit of Venus while preparing viewers for the June 5-6, 2012, spectacle.  The story segues from Jeremiah Horrocks' first sighting, to expeditions seeking to measure the size of the solar system, to the Kepler spacecraft detecting planets as they transit distant stars.
