2012 Transit of Venus plans unveiled


The Royal Society of New Zealand is joining with other organisations to celebrate the 2012 Transit of Venus, with events centring on Tolaga Bay and Gisborne.

Strong relationships built in 2004 with the Royal Societies of New Zealand and London, Natural History Museum of London, Kew Gardens, the British High Commission, the British Council, and Cambridge University, along with communities in Whitby and Portsmouth, have strengthened in the years since the last Transit of Venus.

Student exchanges with Tahiti and England are planned, and discussions are underway as to how the Natural History Museum, Cambridge University and Kew Gardens can be involved in the lead-up to and marking of the observation day.
