Title: Project Venus 2004
Url: http://eclipse.astroinfo.org/transit/venus/project2004/
Publisher: Astroinfo Society
Description: "Venus 2004" is a project of the Astroinfo Society, which was organized to study and publish findings on the transit of Venus that occurred in 2004. Historically, the planet's transit across the sun has been used to make many calculations about the sun and the earth. The technology available today, as opposed to the last transit in 1882, has made it possible for amateur astronomers to join in making observations and testing some of those historical calculations. Two publications, "Measurements of the Solar Parallaxe from Observations of the Transit of Mercury" and "Calculation of the Solar Parallaxe from Observations" are available on this site in PDF format. Both publications contain detailed information, photographs, charts and mathematical equations used to calculate their findings. These are excellent resources for students and other amateur astronomers who are gearing up for the next Venus transit in 2012.
