Event Details

Transit of Venus at the HR MacMillan Space Centre


Head over to the HR MacMillan Space Centre to watch this rare astronomical event!  Another transit of Venus will not occur in your lifetime (unless you plan to live to 2117!).

Events begin at the Gordon MacMillan Southam Observatory (next to the Space Centre) at 2:45 pm on June 5th 2012.

In the event of rain or clouds, the event will move inside the Space Centre to the Cosmic Courtyard where you can also watch a live feed of the event from a clear sky location, Hawaii.

This is a “by donation” event, with proceeds supporting education programs at the Space Centre.
