The Transit of Venus 6 June 2012 – A Rare Opportunity
Tuesday, 21 February 2012


ACSV through Consulting Surveyors National fully supports & is a sponsor of the Transit of Venus project. Members are encouraged to consider being a ‘school visitor’ as it suggests below.

This June, the planet Venus will pass between Earth and the Sun appearing as a small black disc slowly moving across it.

The Transit of Venus is not only a rare astronomical event, but a rare opportunity to generate some meaningful awareness of Surveying and Spatial Science. Join our PR campaign today.

A new website has just been launched to help engage students and the public with a range of resources. Schools have the opportunity to purchase or win 1 of 100 SolarScopes, so students can observe the Transit safely. Orders close on 15 March to secure timely shipment.

Let’s take advantage of this opportunity to reach as many students as possible and increase our public profile.


Ways to get involved

  1. Tell everyone about the Transit of Venus website and competition
