What if I can't see the Transit, or if it is cloudy ?
You could well be in a place on Earth from where the Transit of Venus is not visible. Even worse, if you can indeed see the Transit from your country, and have set up your equipment, and called all your friends and family, the Le Gentil effect can strike, and clouds may cover the Sun ! What can you do ?
There are many groups which are broadcasting the Transit live on the internet, and on television too. These are some of the links (mainly from this site). If you know of more, please do email us at .
