Results and reflections

The Transit of Venus on June 8, 2004 is behind us, and we are left with a gigantic amount of images and material. Below, you can find images from the extensive webcast and from amateur astronomers who have submitted their entries to us. You may also find animated sequences of the Transit. Pictures from the main event in Frognerparken are also available.

BEAUTIFUL AND HISTORIC TRANSIT OF VENUS
For roughly six hours on Tuesday, June 8, a unique celestial phenomenon was visible from several parts of our globe; the planet Venus passed in front of the Sun.
 
MAGNIFICENT TRANSIT OF VENUS
The Venus Transit was a magnificent sight in the sky during the first part of June 8. Many followed the transit live on astronomy.no while thousands watched the event with eclipse-glasses and on a 40 square meter big screen from Frognerparken in Oslo. Live images were transfered from telescopes with webcams from several locations from Spitsbergen in the north to Horten in the south.
