More information in Norwegian
A DVD describes the events and show how a total lunar eclipse will look from the Moon, how the transit of Venus will be, how it would look like from the surface of the Sun and much more. In Norwegian, but the animations are highly self-explanatory.
Equipped with a special solar telescope groups and even school classes watch eclipses and the transit of Venus. They can also look for sun spots. One must NEVER stare at the Sun without sufficient protection and absolutely never through a telescope. Then serious and permanent eye damages are almost guaranteed. Equipped with eclipse shades or solar telescopes the events become accessible, beautiful and safe to watch.
The Venuscope is a solar telescope that is easy to assemble.
Venuscopes can be ordered by sending a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. The price is NOK 1290,- plus freight.
The unique transit of Venus lasts for almost 7 hours. With eclipse shades you can also witness it – there will not be any other chances for more than 100 years!
