Rare Transit Of Venus Across The Sun - This next Tuesday, June 5, you can witness a rare transit of Venus as it passes in front of the disk of the sun. Transits of Venus across the disk of the Sun are among the rarest of planetary alignments. Only seven such events have occurred since the invention of the telescope (1631, 1639, 1761, 1769, 1874, 1882 and 2004).

Most of North America will see the beginning of the transit in the afternoon and evening of June 5. The sun will set before the end of the 6-hour event. If you miss the transit for 2012, you will have to wait more than a century for the next one. You will need eclipse glasses to view the transit.

For Baja history buffs, a team of Spanish and French astronomers came to Baja sur in 1769 and set up observing sites near Cabo San Lucas and Real de San Antonio, near the present day San Antonio, in order to observe the Venus transit of that year. Of the 28 members on the scientific team, 20 died during the Baja part of the expedition (Courtesy, Baja Pony Express). moderator [- at -] bajawesternonion.com, en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transit_of_Venus - The Baja Western Onion

Baja Sky Watch for June, 2012 - The big event for June is the transit of Venus across the face of the sun on the afternoon of Tuesday, June 5. The Ensenada Institute of Astronomy announced it intends to set up telescopes for viewing the transit at Mission San Jose Del Cabo, the site used to watch the 1769 transit by Spanish and French astronomers. The transit will begin at approximately 4:06:30 pm and continue past sunset. Do not look at the sun without certified eclipse glasses or #14 welding glass. Through eclipse glasses, Venus will just be a dot crossing the face of the sun. Earth would appear just as tiny in the vast solar system to an observer on Mars. The event can be watched live on the internet at www.slooh.com. For historical information and more go to www.transitofvenus.org. After passing to the west of the sun, near the end of the month both Venus and Jupiter will appear in the east before sunrise as the bright morning stars in the constellation Taurus, with Venus sitting next to the bright star Aldebran.

There are three other sky events worth watching in early June. Around 5am on Monday, June 4, the setting full moon will be partially eclipsed by earth's shadow. On Monday's evening at 8:35:37pm in the Cabo San Lucas area, there will be a very bright satellite flare high in the ESE (a little south of due east) sky and lasting about 10 seconds.. You might be able to catch a slightly dimmer view at other locations on the Eastcape, but begin viewing half a minute earlier. Tuesday evening, after the transit of Venus, the International Space Station will make a bright pass, rising in the SW around 9:35pm, passing high overhead around 9:38pm, and setting in the NE around 9:41, a six-minute trip. It will be the brightest object in the night sky when overhead. In the Cabo San Lucas area, the ISS will transit across Mars and the last star in the handle of the Big Dipper.

All month long, Saturn and Mars will be high the the south or southwestern sky by 9pm. Scorpio, with the red giant double star Antares at its heart, will be rising in the southeast sky, and the Southern Cross will be standing vertically just above the southern horizon. The Big Dipper should be easy to spot in the northern sky. If you follow the arc of the Dipper's handle across the sky it will lead you to Arcturus, the 3rd brightest star in the sky. Sliding past Arcturus will take you to the star Spica near Saturn. - Courtesy Baja Pony Express

Help Save A Starving Dog - Courtesy Baja Pony Express - When traveling north (or south) we all see the starving homeless dogs along the road. Especially around San Quintin and the towns north. So, if you see a dog in distress and can stop safely, please call one of these groups and get transporting directions, instead of leaving them to starve and die on the road side. To help you with your rescue, have an old blanket, kibbles, water bowl and a loop collar leash in your car. If you are not comfortable transporting them, even offering them food will help.

If You See An Animal In Distress, Call: The Baja Animal Sanctuary, near Rosarito, 22 miles south of the San Ysidro border 619-786-7928 www.BajaAnimalSanctuary.org. C.A.R.E in the Punta Banda area, 1/2 hour south of Ensenada. 626 145 0484 www.carebaja.org. Please print these numbers and carry them with you. Together we can make a change. - ALMA Humanitaria, A.C., www.almacares.com The Baja Western Onion
