Transit minus 60 minutes

With an hour to first contact, the Svalbard ground teams are making their very last preparations and hoping the breaks in the clouds are favourable for viewing some – if not all – of the transit tonight.

Appetites for Venus and transits were whet during the public lecture program held earlier this evening, which saw over 50 locals turn out to learn about the rare astronomical event, hoping to witness it for themselves.
