Transit of Venus

With the Transit of Venus on June 5-6, 2012, many organizations made available resources, including this short full dome video.

The Transit of Venus is a 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.
