    Hi,
    Anyone want to see the venus transit at the Nehru Planetarium? I'm not sure if they're organising something, but if someone knows about it could they post back? And if they are, would anyone like to go?

    Cheers,
    Kauffmann

    Here's a paste up from my Facebook page -

    Watch the Venus transit live from Leh, the world's highest observatory. A wonderful initiative by the Indian astronomers.

    Even though the cloud cover has spoiled the show, keep tuned in, it might clear eventually(though I highly suspect there's a fat chance of that happening). Till then, enjoy the beauty of Leh, panoramic view of the mountains, listen to the live commentary of the astronomers and enjoy their casual chatter.

    PS: I can't stop laughing at the preview thumbnaill! Indian X-files unveiled, the truth is out there ta-da-da-dun! Now I'm off to find my Scully.

    The thumbnail preview was of a UFO hovering over a field with "I want to believe" written on it.

    Some very good images have been shot by people of this wonderful phenomenon...
    one of them is our own Abhinav Singhai.

    It is his copyrighted image and I think he won't mind me sharing it here !!
