              The transit of Venus across the sun in June 2012 will be the last chance in our lifetime to see this rare planetary alignment that has been so important in history. Rich in historical detail and cutting edge science, along with practical information on how and when to view the tr...ansit, Transit of Venus is the must-have companion to this extraordinary astronomical event. From Johannes Keplers first prediction of a transit of Venus in 1631, to Captain Cooks 1769 transit expedition to Tahiti (which led to the European settlement of Australia), and on to our 21st-century quest to find distant Earth-like planets using the transit method, astronomer Nick Lomb takes us on a thrilling journey of exploration and adventure.
