Astronomy in Timor-Leste: Celebrating the Transit of Venus 2012

On 6 June 2012, the planet Venus will cross the solar disc in an extremely rare astronomical event only visible from some parts of the globe. Timor-Leste will witness this transit of Venus, which will only happen again in more than 100 years. Universe Awareness (UNAWE) partners are organising several educational activities in Timor-Leste on the occasion of the transit, ranging from teacher training workshops to a public observing event. These activities are targeted at teachers, children, students and the general public and follow the vision of UNAWE: Inspire everyone with our wonderful cosmos.
