Venus Crosses the Face of the Sun at BAU

Keeping pace with the natural phenomenon of Venus crossing the face of the Sun, Beirut Arab University's observatory, equipped with a telescope, allowed the interested students and the Astronomy Club members in Debbieh Campus to observe this cosmic phenomenon on Wednesday 6/6/2012 at a quarter to six a.m. under the supervision of Mr. Adan Tayyara, the Astronomy lecturer.

In its transit, Venus orbited the Sun at a distance of 100 million km from the Sun and 50 million km from the Earth. The transit of Venus 2012 is one of the rarest sky-watching events which happened on 8/04/2004 and will not occur again until 2117.

The BAU team was also able to take photos of the sunspots.
