"The biological community is a vast and complicated system for sharing and distributing the energy of the sun among a diversity of life forms." ~Martson Bates
Transit of Venus
Much of the world can witness the 2012 transit of Venus. The date
depends on what side of the International Dateline you will be
observing. Observers in North America will see the transit in the
evening on June 5, 2012, through sunset, so you want to have a clear
western horizon. In Reno the transit will start around 2:00pm and end when the sun sets. Check it out!
