The Astronomy Center has provided educational resources to introductory astronomy educators since 2003. Over the past 20 years, the rapid pace of discovery has rendered some of our linked resources obsolete. Thus, the Astronomy Center will be decommissioned on March 1, 2022. Our highest quality resources will be retained on ComPADRE.org.
This website tells the story of astronomers in pursuit of understanding and observing transits of Venus from 1631 to present day. Much of the content comes from rare books and articles on Venus transits written over the last four centuries.
