Get the lowdown on the many resources available as we get ready for the last-in-a-lifetime chance to see the Transit of Venus with your community. Chuck Bueter shares some great resources available for this outreach opportunity. Hear a quick and engaging history of the Venus transits that humans have witnessed. Find out how to use new and innovative resources to engage the public around this event. Chuck will give us great ideas and links to find more.

Chuck Bueter first became interested in the transit of Venus when he read engaging stories of the international expeditions to time the planet's passage across the sun. For the 2004 transit of Venus, he built the website www.transitofvenus.org, and Chuck now brings the 2012 transit of Venus to the public by hosting solar-viewing workshops, coordinating community celebrations, writing articles and blog entries, building website content, and raising awareness about the celestial phenomenon.
