Venus in Transit
Maor, Eli,
ISBN: 0691115893
Princeton University Press, Princeton, 2004. 
  Softcover. Very Good Condition/. First Edition. In 2004, Venus crossed the sun's face for the first time since 1882. Some did not bother to step outside. Others planned for years, reserving tickets to see the transit in its entirety. But even this group of astronomers and experience seekers were attracted not by scientific purpose but by the event's beauty, rarity, and perhaps -- after this book -- history. For previous sky-watchers, though, transits afforded the only chance to determine the all-important astronomical unit: the mean distance between earth and sun. Eli Maor tells the intriguing tale of the five Venus transits previously observed and the fantastic efforts made to record them. Throughout, Maor guided readers to the then upcoming Venus transits in 2004 and 2012, opportunities to witness a phenomenon seen by no living person and not to be repeated until 2117 Full number line. Size: Trade Paperback. XIV, 195, [7] pages, in colour illustrated softcover binding, illustrated throughout with diagrams, and drawings, and some black-and-white photographs.
