Isn't it strange that all these things are lining up with our current time? by Q: The prophecy of St. Malachy of 1139 AD says that there will only be one last Pope after the current one. The Mayan calendar ends. 2012 (MMXII) will be a leap year starting on Sunday of the Gregorian calendar. April 17 — The United States will cede control of the military of the Republic of Korea after 50 years of control. June 6 — Second and last solar transit of the planet Venus of this century; the next pair is predicted to occur in 2117 and 2125 The Mesoamerican Long Count calendar, notably used by the Maya civilization among others of pre-Columbian Mesoamerica, completes its thirteenth b'ak'tun cycle since the calendar's mythical starting point . . . The Long Count b'ak'tun date of this starting point (13.0.0.0.0) is repeated, for the first time in a span of approximately 5,125 solar years. The significance of this period-ending to the pre-Columbian Maya themselves is unclear, and there is an incomplete inscription (Tortuguero Monument 6) that records this date. NASA predicts that the Sun will reverse its own magnetic poles during 2012 as result of reaching the end of the current 11-year sunspot cycle. Tiki dude, I am not saying anythi9ng about the end of the world. I don't believe that I am referring to the end of the world. All I asked is; Isn't it strange that all these things are lining up with our current time. What is it with you people? If I were a scientist, I would gather sources that had to do with what I was analyzing, and not form a conclusion based upon assumption, but merely observe until I could see a pattern or recognize a correlation. I have not recognized anything except that these things are all lining up with our current time. Why are all of you jumping to conclusions about what I have said??!

A: well i dont care what these people say, I believe the poles are going to switch. Its not going to be the end of the world, but a lot will change. Its these people that dont care to read a little that are going to be killed off when this happens, which will help us survivors, so you guys keep doubting-more food for me. Fortunately for them, NASA is predicting major signs of the coming event will be very evident, especially in the sky, where will now be able to see Nibiru from some places. Im not going off of biblical predictions, the Mayans, or Nostradamus either. Do a search-especially on Nibiru..... Good luck I think this is a great question btw, yes these things are in fact lining up the current times-its freaky =)

Do you read my articles? Do you understand why I post on the 2nd Coming? by crimmsonandclover Q: http://www.sciencealert.com.au/news/20082002-16925.html Warming may increase earthquakes Reason for earthquake season revealed http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/22505955/ National Geographic: 80 percent of all the planet's earthquakes occur along the rim of the Pacific Ocean, called the "Ring of Fire" because of the increase of volcanic activity there as well NASA even posts what the Alignment of Venus.The global visibility of the 2012 -http://sunearth.gsfc.nasa.gov/eclipse/transit/venus0412.html http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/3077385/ Why wait before it is to late

A: I wonder if those who mock will still be mocking when they're under the thumb of the Antichrist. All you can do is warn them. Keep it up.

Weather & Travel in June? by Matt Q: On June 5th, 2012 I wish to watch the Transit of Venus. My concern is clouds getting in the way of viewing the sun. I am looking at time to get to a location, the cost of travel, and the chance of sunshine in these locations: Fairbanks, AK Hawaii Brisbane, Australia Iskut, Canada Which location has the best percentage of sunshine (no clouds) to cost of getting there from Portland, Oregon? http://eclipse.gsfc.nasa.gov/OH/transit12.html

A: I would think Hawaii, but be sure to get on the west side of the island, where clouds tend to be dissipated by the winds blowing down the mountain slopes.

What do you guys think, Iowa voting prediction results? by Q: I was just trying to see who will have a good day on January 3rd, 2012 Iowa Caucus voting day... Ron Paul (August 20, 1935) - 7 aspects - Vote Day aspect His Birthdate (1 bad aspect) Transit Sun sextile his natal Mars - good day for him Transit Sun trine his natal Neptune - good day for him Transit Moon trine his natal Mercury - good day for him Transit Mercury square his natal Venus - oh oh... something will go bad for him. Transit Mars conjunction his natal Venus - so&so day for him Transit Pluto trine his natal Mercury - good day for him Transit Pluto sextile his natal Saturn - good day for him Rick Perry (March 4, 1950) - 7 aspects.... Vote Day aspect his birthdate - (3 aspects) Transit Sun sextile his natal Sun - good day for him Transit Sun trine his natal Moon - good day for him Transit Venus trine his natal Neptune - good day for him Transit Venus opposition his natal Pluto - oh oh, something will go bad for him Transit Jupiter sextile his natal Uranus - good day for him Transit Uranus square his natal Uranus - oh oh, something will go bad for him Transit Neptune trine his natal Uranus - good day for him Transit Pluto square his natal Mars - oh oh, something will go bad for him Newt Gingrich - (June 17, 1943) - 3 aspects?????? what? why? only 3 aspects?? How??? He won't get enough vote??? He will lose on this day? In Iowa? (2 bad aspects) Transit Mercury opposition his natal Sun - oh oh, not a good day Transit Venus trine his natal Saturn - a good day Transit Uranus opposition his natal Neptune - not a good day for him... hmmm Mitt Romney (March 12, 1947) - 4 aspects??? 4? Because in January 3rd, 2008... Obama had 7 aspects and he recieved the most votes in Iowa Democratic Presidential Caucus. He only had one bad aspect.- Pluto oppose Venus. Mercury Trine Moon Mercury Trine Mars Mercury Conjunction Saturn Mars Conjunction Venus Saturn Sextile Neptune Saturn Conjunction Pluto Pluto Opposition Venus John Edwards came in 2nd place... he had 11 aspects (4 bad aspects) Hillary Clinton came in 3rd place... she had 6 aspects (1 bad aspect) Bill Richardson came in 4th place...he had 5 aspects (2 bad aspects) Joe Biden came in 5th place.... he had 3 aspects Chris Dodd came in 6th place... he had 8 aspects (4 bad aspects out of 8 aspects) Kucinich came in 7th place... he had 3 aspects Mike Gravel came in last.... he had 6 aspects (2 bad aspects) So anyway... back to Mitt Romney - 4 aspects (2 bad aspects) Moon Square Venus Venus Trine Uranus Mars Opposition Sun Uranus Trine Saturn Michelle Bachmann - 8 aspects (2 bad aspects) Moon Sextile Mars Mercury Trine Mercury Mercury Sextile Jupiter Mercury Conjunction Saturn Venus Conjunction Moon Mars Trine Sun Jupiter Trine Pluto Neptune Opposition Pluto Rick Santorum - 8 aspects (1 bad aspect) Moon Sextile Mars Mercury Trine Mercury Mercury Sextile Jupiter Mercury Conjunction Saturn Venus Conjunction Moon Mars Trine Sun Jupiter Trine Pluto Neptune Opposition Pluto So I'm thinking... Obama won 1st place because he had 7 aspects, one bad aspect, so 7 minus 1 = 6 Edwards won 2nd place, he had 11 aspects, 4 bad aspects pulled him down, 11 minus 4 = 7 Clinton in 3rd place, she had 6 aspects, one bad aspect pulled her down, 6 minus 1 = 5 Richardson in 4th place, he had 5 aspects, 2 bad aspects, 5 minus 2 = 3 Biden in 5th place, 3 aspects... Dodd in 6th place, 8 aspects, 4 bad aspects pulled him down, 8 minus 4 = 4 Kucinich in 7th place, 3 aspects Mike Gravel in last place - 6 aspects, 2 bad aspects pulled him down, 6 minus 2 = 4 I think the Iowa result next year will be.... Rick Santorum will receive the most votes... 8 aspects minus 1 bad aspect = 7 Ron Paul will come in 2nd place... 7 aspects minus 1 bad aspect = 6 Michelle Bachmann will come in 3rd place... 8 aspects minus 2 bad aspects = 6 Rick Perry will come in 4th place... 7 aspects minus 3 bad aspects = 4 Mitt Romney will come in 5th place... 4 aspects minus 2 bad aspects = 2 Newt Gingrich will come in 6th place... 3 aspects minus 2 bad aspects = 1 So, what do you think?

A: Most likely it will be Michelle Bachmann (unfortunately), thanks to her aspects.

A: That is way too awesome for me to understand, so I don't know if I trust it or not. I will be sure to look at the list again after the Iowa caucus to see how reliable you are. Best of luck on your skill. And i'm glad Ron Paul is up there.

Chiron conjunct Mars.....can someone plz explain? (transits)? by hbn_235 Q: On April 12, 2012 Chiron (transit) will conjunct Mars (natal) (My Mars being in Pisces/1st house) in my transit-natal chart what does that mean for me or what will/what way will that affect me? *also that day my Venus (Gemini 4th house transit) square Mars (natal Pisces/1st house)/ and True node (Sagittarius 10th house transit) square Mars (natal Pisces/1st house).

A: Chiron-Mars contacts indicate either a tendency to not stand up for oneself due to feelings of guilt and inferiority or a tendency to be overly-aggressive and impulsive, is situations that are inappropriate, often to cover for such feelings. A Chiron(Aries) transit through the 1st house and conjunct the natal Mars(Pisces) suggests a period when the native is made more aware of their desire nature and how they go about getting what they want. They may be confronted with psychological or emotional issues that stem from issues related to men, the parents and sexuality. Usually the native feels more interested in doing something practical and rigorous to help the less fortunate during this period. They may also be called upon by others that have psychological issues related to the same themes.

Solar filter questions? by Q: I am thinking about purchasing a solar filter for the coming venus transit over the sun coming up on June 5th 2012 starting at 6 PM available until almost 9 PM I am viewing from Columbus, OH I am using a 10 in. Zhumell Dobsonian reflector telescope I am wondering if I would be able to see the transit with a solar filter and more importatly, would I be able to record the transit with my imager? I use a Celestron Neximage Solar System imager I have imaged the moon and every planet in the solar system with this, so I am just curious as to whether or not I would be able to use this to record/ image the sun/ venus transit? as far as what brand I should go with etc. what would be the best solar filter choice for my telescope and the purpose I am trying to use it for? Here is a link for a solar filter that Ihave found https://www.all-startelescope.com/sales/product_info.php?products_id=883&osCsid=5140499be0a54b63e0a711e6dcd211a9 All help is greatly appreciated

A: Although the Orion solar filters are good, I prefer the filters from Jim Kendrick, which use Baader Astrosolar film, which is optically superior to the glass used in Orion's filters. The Kendrick filters have a slightly brighter visual image than the Orion (but are still 100% safe) so will be better for unguided photography on a Dobsonian. I will be using a Kendrick solar filter to view the transit, just as I dd for the 2004 eclipse. It does an excellent job.

Astrologers: Question about Pluto Transits...? by Q: I have a host of Pluto transits coming up and from what I read on Astro.com 2011 & 2012 will be very tough for me. How, in your opinion, will the transits below play out? Do you think astro.com is a reliable site? Also, what do you think is the best way to get through a rough transit period? Pluto square Pluto (mid. Jan. 2010 - mid. Nov. 2012) Pluto trine Venus (beg. Feb. 2011 - beg. Dec. 2012) Jupiter opposition Pluto (Feb. 20 - March 1, 2011) Pluto conjunct Moon (end of Feb. 2011 - end of Dec. 2012) Other transits of note: Uranus trine Ascendant (beg. June 2010 - beg. Feb. 2012; laid off from work in beg. of Aug. 2010) Jupiter conjunct Jupiter (May 3 - 12, 2011) Please share any experiences you have had under Pluto transits, regardless of the aspects involved. Thanks!

A: Astro.com is a very reliable sight, but I don't usually rely on it to interpret transits, or much of anything for that manner. This is better done by an actual astrologer, because there are too many factors that come into play that will change the general effect of the transiting planet. Pluto transits generally represent a period when the native has to get to the bottom of issues involving the houses and signs it involves. A Moon conjunct Pluto transit suggests a period when the native is likely to engage in emotional work, resolving past issues. They may seek to get to the bottom of feelings from past experiences that resurface during this period to be dealt with. It may be a period of emotional upheaval, but the native becomes more sure of the emotional reasons behind their actions. Often this transit leads to a period of heightened intuition, and the native is especially adept at rooting out the emotion factors behind the actions of others. A Venus trine Pluto transit suggests a period when the native is likely to get involved in intense relationships. The native may be particularly drawn to Plutonian types during this period. The partners are likely to help the native with their growth and internal work. This is also liable to be a period when the native's emotional nature is given more profoundness. Jupiter oppose Pluto suggests a period when the native finds themselves more curious and seeks to expand their knowledge about matters of the occult. Pluto square Pluto may indicate a period when the native finds themselves engaged in power struggles. Uranus trine Asc suggests a period when the native seeks to express their individuality. They are likly to be more independent and dramatic during this period. Jupiter conjunct Jupiter will enhance the natal characteristics of Jupiter.

Has anyone had Saturn transit opposition their moon.. ie: aries moon folks? by Saggy MC the Ist Q: I think anyone who's an aries moon would've recently had Saturn Libra transit opposite their moons or is about to.. What had that been like? I'll be having that sometime in 2012, when Saturn goes into Scorpio.. Just had the Saturn return Libra, I'm having the Saturn opposition sun venus mars now.. next thing to happen is Saturn will conjunct my pluto@23deg... Planets have sort of been getting hit up, one after the other..

Poll: I want to clear up this 2012 nonsense and get as many yes/no's on whether they think its going to happen? by browns0809 Q: Alright this may be a little lengthy but bare with me here. There are many arguments that go against this whole 2012 thing. 1. From what I have done research on, the mayans intended it to be a new age (besides were they really suppose to make a calender that lasts forever?) 2. Nostradamous actually predicted that the world would actually end in 3447 B.C. or something close to that period. And everything that he says is so vague that it can mean relatively anything and people have twisted his words to make it sound realistic. 3. The episodes on the History Channel are thriving off of gullible people to watch their channel and produce income and use it to profit off people. If it was going to happen, why would they try and make money off of it? 4. For those Nibiru or Planet X believers, if it were true then we would have been able to spot it by now when they sent out satellites to jupiter. -Also anyone who has been following this story, should know that it was invented by an outrageous author Zeccharia Sinchin and in his book stated that aliens have created humans on this planet Nibiru and are coming back - Also if anyone remembers the story, this planet was suppose to arrive back in 2003 in like March or Springtime. When it didn't come these people decided to attach it to the next event which happened to be 2012. Also another story i've read since i decide not to read his books is that he estimated the return of this planet in 2085 which will complete its 3600 year orbit. 6. About the whole thing on the IHC and the lottery that has been seen my millions if not billions of people on the myspace website is another desperate way for money, marketing and getting rich of this hoax. The IHC is a Sony Productions website that is trying to get people scared to watch the movie that is being released in Nov. 2009 by the same guy who produced 10,000 B.C. and Independence Day (Both Sci-Fi and fictional movies, sound about the same right!?) Sony is just promoting the movie with this site and you can click "Private Policy" on the site to see that it is a Sony website about the upcoming movie. 7. The whole theory about the galactical alignment has also had its stories. Their will be a transit of Venus in that year and that has happened all the time. Their wont be any real planetary alignments and you can use any space program to find that it is something like 6.5 degrees off from the sun.(This is what I heard as I am not an astronomer by any means) Also, it is said that the last one has taken place in the year 2005 and it will be only 0.1% off from where it was in 2005, and nothing happened then did it?!?!? Also, their is no known scientists that believed anything catastrophic is going to happen when this happens. 8. The whole poles shifting thing is quite far out to regarding that it has proven by scientists by using the oceans floor to say that the poles have shifted before but it takes thousands, if not tens of thousands of years to do so. And this magnetic pull would have to be something extraordinary to accomplish this and since its only going to be 0.1% different, how is that going to happen? After all of this, is there really any explanation that can truly point that something is going to happen? There are so many theories that get made up each day by different people to try and make people watch these shows or buy their books and profit off of it. IF it were real, why would the money matter to this people? Their stuff should be free. **Also I think this stuff is targeted to the younger audience such as adolescents because they havent experienced a scare like this as much grown ups have during their life time. Remember Y2K, and supposably my Professor said same thing about 1988 and some other years. It's my opinion that these people make up these scary things to every 10-15 years or shorter to scare the "new generation". And for all you people who think the government or some thing like NASA is hiding it, 1st off, the government wouldn't let Sony promote this idea on such a popular website as Myspace and let alone let them come out with a movie!! Plus if Nasa has already warned us about Appophis in the year 2029(which is said to only have a 1/45,000 chance to happen), why wouldnt they have warned us about this years ago or some other space station? Plus most of you have forgotten this or never knew this, the internet was first created by the government back in 1970 or so!!!! It is just sad to see that almost anyone can make any website and come up with lies these days and post unreal videos on youtube, look at all the magic and optical illusions that can be done, its truly amazing. What's going to happen is that young children and teens are going to be frightened and some may actually do things such as suicide or max spending and get behind financially. It is just one big marketing thing and its sad the extremes people and businesses(like sony who is desparetly in need of money) will go to for also to add, don't you think these lies will cause suicides between teens and financial probs as they spend w/o care? not so much for the adults as they already been through this already and not exposed to this hoax as it is only on the internet mostly...

A: 1. Nibiru = fantastic lie. 2. Planet X = fantastic lie. 3, Planetary alignments = fantastic lie. 4. Cross galactic central plane = fantastic lie. 5. Sun, Earth and galactic centre line up = fantastic lie. 6. Photon belt = fantastic lie. 7. Mayans were best astronomers of ancient world = fantastic lie. 8. Mayans predicted end of the world = fantastic lie. 9. Some waffle about precession of the equinoxes over 26,000 or whatever years = fantastic lie. 10. Bible codes = fantastic lie. 11. Nostradamus = fantastic lie. 12. Revelation = fantastic lie. Get my drift? They want your money or you in some ghastly religious cult = mundane fact.

December 2012. Nothing is going to happen??? by yerfavoritefiddler Q: I agree that the astronomical event due on 12/23/12 is as dangerous to us Earthlings as a transit of Venus. But when I read that "absolutely nothing is going to happen," I have to disagree. Here's what's going to happen: 39% of the US population is going to be 100% convinced that the world is about to end. They'll start mentally/spiritually preparing for it in October 2012. There will be a lot of praying and giving away of money. Another 39% won't be so sure but will figure "I might as well live it up, they might be right." With this crowd there will be a lot of impulsive or desperate behavior, debauchery etc. The rest of us (22% might be optimistic) will know that nothing is going to happen, but no one will listen to us. Do you really think it matters that we're right? So, while it's merely an astronomical curiosity it has the potential of being a social and economic disaster. Basically, and unfortunately, scientists do little to sway public opinion. For example, Britney Spears has sold over 90 million records. So my question: how many Britney Spears records do you own? So far 10% of the answerers on this page believe it's the end. I wonder what the percentage would be on the Polls and Surveys page, or the population at large?

A: I never thought of it in this manner. So indeed, something will happen in 2012... all the effect of humanity's stupidity. Post Scriptum: I own no Brittney Spears albums.

Do you know what will happen in 2012? by Comrade Abdul Q: Super Bowl XLVI Diamon Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II Transit of Venus Elections in Finland, France, Mexico and Hong Kong Olympics in London Expiration of the Kotyo Protocol What will NOT happen is the end of the world, whatever the Mayan Calendar says. On December 22nd, 2012, a lot of people here are going to look like right idiots.

A: I know what will happen. The same thing that happened in the year 1001, 1667, 1976, on January 1st 2000, and countless other dates throughout history: people will say "Oh, so the end of the world didn't come this year after all". Of course, people will be stupid enough to come up with yet another year.

How do I make solar glasses?PLZ HELP FAST!? by Q: It's Saturday and I can't get solar glasses by Tuesday, June 5, 2012 for the transit of Venus. I have regular home supplies, but I want to see the transit in person, NOT with a pinhole projector. Wondering if sunglasses with a coating of something would work? Are there any stores around central NJ with solar glasses? Sears, Wal-mart, anywhere? PLZ HELP!

A: You could use # 14 Welder's Goggles - try a welding supply place. Please don't try to improvise. You're gambling with your eyes. Seeing as you're in Central NJ, you might want to attend the Transit event at Princeton University: http://www.princeton.edu/astro/resources/outreach/venus-transit-2012/ Including live viewing from the roof of the Engineering Quad.

Isn't it interesting that EVERYTHING points to 2102 as the end of the world? by Kevin A.R.T. Q: Things that will happen in 2012: January 1 - Poland, Bulgaria, and Latvia are set to adopt the Euro. June 6 - The second and last solar transit of Venus of the century July 18–21 - The 2012 World Rowing Championships will be held at Plovdiv, Bulgaria. November 6 - Puerto Rico general election. December 31 - The Kyoto Protocol will expire. Don't all these things point to the end of the world in 2012?

A: You missed out the olympics in london, which is clearly why the world will end.

What's the DL on Venus in Gemini? by fabiolapistola Q: I'm absolutly curious about my venus sign, how does this effect my relationships w/ people? my personality? Venus is in transit and again it will be in gemini in June 2012 <--- any info on that would be GREAT :)

A: yes venus gemini good, but it also bad. gemini venus love make new friend and popularity. but they not serious of relationship move too fast of different people.

A question about 2012? by Salvador Q: When is the Venus transit of the sun due to occur that year? I could look it up in stellarium, but I'm lazy and I figured the few who are actually into astronomy here could use a break from the regular 2012 crap :-) kumorifox: Thanks bro James: What does the bible have to do with this? Jase: Yeah, there should be some good games. But I don't know about that logo...

A: On the 6th of June 2012.

Do you believe the world will end On December 21, 2012? by Monteaco(MOn-uh-koh) Q: The Maya believed that their world would end on Dec 21, 2012. Of all the dates put forth by prophets and cultures for a doomsday, this is one with an authentic almost eerie feel to it because the maya calendar has proved correct in astrological events before... The maya calendar dates back 3000 years BC ..and is most consistent with our current calendar..BUT their calendar ends Dec 21, 2012 The Maya claimed that this future end-time would include a solar shift, a Venus transit and mounting earthquakes. Modern astronomy tells us that this date ends an astronomical 26,000-year process...meaning the end? Some say this date galaxy will collide or possibly GOd will return and will make his return at the Ethipoian Highlands...in Africa where human life is said to have originated. Regardless of which you believe.the world is gonna end, the bible says so...but doesnt allude to when... Could the maya who have always been so right...Be Very right this time as well?? The bible says "Not one knows The DAY, not the son, only the father" but the year can be pinpointed through astronomy ...

A: I think we may be in for a hot bumpy ride for the next few years. We may even witness more deaths due to stronger hurricanes, earthquakes and tsunamis. The Mayans do not expect life to end, at the end of their calendar, only life as we know it, but it could end if man causes it to end. Here is a little summary about the Mayan people and their beliefs. The Mayan Indians regard their beliefs as both a science and a religion. Their discoveries are not done in a lab but rather by tapping into the cosmos via the mind. Through the extensive use of meditation, they are able to discover and track planetary movements as well as space anomalies such as black holes. They used this information to construct a calendar so accurate that no present day calendar can rival its accuracy. They also use this information to predict future events. According to some Mayans, this date marks the end of the long count of their calendar; Set to end on a winter solstice (12-21-12). On this date, our Solar system will be aligned , with the Milky Way's equator. Our sun will be centered in a position called "The Tree of Life", as it does every 25,800 years. We will have exited the forth dimension and entered the fifth dimension. This date also marks the end of the Mayan "Great Cycle" of the long count, which is equivalent to 5125 years. We exit the age of Pisces and enter the age of Aquarius. In this position, unusually violent sun spot activity may cause a pole shift. Earthquakes, tsunamis, and floods will run ramped. Significant loss of life will occur. Earths magnetic field will temporarily collapse. Humans will be exposed to a cosmic energy that will facilitate enlightenment. In this state of higher consciousness, we will recognize that all matter, plant, animal, mineral are bound as one. This realization will mark the end of wars for a time. People will be able to connect to the essence of god (vibrating energy) like only the most enlightened can. The date marks a goal to be reached. Evil forces will make every effort to keep humanity from reaching the date. These evil forces are those entrenched in the third dimension, in the Material world. They have no desire to leave this age and wish to continue exploiting and endangering all life for material gain. Wars just prior to this date could be most devastating, with a loss of as much as 2/3 of our population anticipated. The resulting man made environmental damage could make life inhospitable for those who survive.

Solar filter questions help please? by ozzrya91 Q: I am trying to view the 2012 Venus transit in june I use a Dobsonian 10in. Zhumell reflector telescope I am trying to find a filter in time. So I have 2 questions. 1. What is the right filter for my telescope? Here is a direct link to the telescope - http://www.telescopes.com//telescopes/dobsonian-telescopes/zhumellz10deluxedobsonianreflectortelescope.cfm Here is a direct link to where I will most likely end up ordering the telescope from - http://www.kendrickastro.com/astro/solarfilters.html My telescope is a 10 in. Dobsonian reflector [BRAND- Zhumell] and I am purchasing a VISUAL solar filter to do both visual and photographic work with. What is the correct filter to purchase on this site for my telescope? 2. Does anyone out there have a solar filter that they'd be willing to sell to me that would work with my telescope in time for the transit? aperature- 10 in. Focal length- 1250mm brand- zhumell type- Donsonian/ reflector NEEDED- june 4th at the very latest All help is greatly appreciated

A: DO NOT buy and 'eyepiece' solar filter. It will damage the inner workings of a telescope. Measure the widest diameter of the outside of your telescope at the point where the light enters your scope. Then go to the Orion website and get one of their glass solar filters. http://www.oriontelescopes.com/ If you are in doubt of which filter to get, they have an 800 number listed where you can call and ask an expert about the measurements and details. Orion glass white light filters are great for transits, eclipses, and sunspots. They really are the best quality and value for the buck.

Transiting Uranus square natal Venus? by Q: How have people experienced this transit? I am about to experience it starting from May this year until January 2012. Venus is natally in my 8th house in close opposition to natal Uranus (obviously in 2nd house), and currently Uranus is still in my 4th house and will probably continue to be there at the beginning of the transit. What can I expect? Lol you guys are funny. Where's the best place to post this if I want someone who gets astrology to read it though. Thanks metta. Well now I'm even more scared((( - my Uranus is in Capricorn.... I don't want anybody or anything to leave.....I've being gripping with steel hands onto everything I have and not changing anything.......

A: Because the 4th house is associated with beginnings and endings, your home, and your parents , and it is in square to your natal Venus in your 8th house, I would expect some life changing events, such as a move and/or someone leaving in your life that you have been close to, usually unexpectedly. Depending on whether you have Uranus in Gemini, you could experience a close friend or relative leaving. With Uranus in Virgo it could be grown children moving out on there own. In any case with every ending there is a new beginning.

Will June 6 2012 be the end of the world? by Q: People are saying the world will end on June 6, I know it's suppose to be the transit of Venus for some places in the world, but I am getting very nervous! I don't want to die! And my summer vacation starts 8 days after June 6! Please be honest!

A: No one knows when the end will be.

Do Milankovic Cycles relate to the procession of equinoxes in regards to the mayan calender? by stuccohound Q: The mayans considered procession and the orbit of venus to be central to time cycles. Consider that on June 6? 2004 there was a transit of venus. This is close the summer solstice...max tilt north pole... On Dec 26 of the Indian ocean tsunami occured..near winter solstice (max tilt s. pole) What gravitational effects does venus have on earth. Next transit June 2012. Do transits change the angle of earths tilt? Can a transit pull the earth slightly closer to the sun? THANKS

A: Venus passes between Earth and Sun every 19 months, but doesn't usually transit across the face of the Sun. The gravitational pull of Venus is dependent on its distance, not whether it happens to cross the face of the Sun. This gravitational pull, in any case, is far too weak to alter the tilt of the Earth's axis.

Transit of venus In PA? by Q: How do i locate the sun in the sky which way do i Look also what time should I go out to look How long will I be able to see it for June 5 2012 thank you

THE NEXT TRANSIT OF VENUS? by Q: IS 2012 i think but what month , and were will be best to see it , using reverse telescopes i mean safely ,and is the next transit 123 years later the last one was 2006 i think

A: June 6 (or 5th, depending on your time zone) The last transit of Venus was 2004. They come in pairs, 8 years apart, then are seperated by long gaps. The next pair of Venus transits will be in 2117 and 2125

Transiting Uranus square Venus? by Q: How have people experienced this transit? I am about to experience it starting from May this year until January 2012. Venus is natally in my 8th house in close opposition to natal Uranus (obviously in 2nd house), and currently Uranus is still in my 4th house and will probably continue to be there at the beginning of the transit. What can I expect? Natal Uranus is in Capricorn, natal Venus is in Cancer.

A: expect the unexpected. perhaps a need to feel liberated. unexpected changes in your love life may happen

How are we able to see a transit of a planet ? by Q: The Transit of Venus will happen on the 6th of June 2012. How will we be able to see the transit ?

A: You might try doing what -I- will be doing - - find a nearby (professional) observatory that will be open to the public for viewing this transit. Next best option - find a local astronomy group/club that will be observing it. Third best option - watch it on the web. (This is also my back-up option in case of bad weather locally.)

Why do Venus Transits happen in pairs that are 8 years apart? by Q: I heard that all transits of Venus happen in pairs that are 8 years apart. For example, one happened in 2004 and now 2012. Why does this happen? Does it have anything to do with Venus' or Earth's rotation?

Question about the Venus Transit? by Q: I was reading about the rare cosmic phenomena, the transit of Venus and I noticed that the last that happened was June 8, 2004. The one that happened before that one was in 1882. And the next one will happen in 2012, then 2117 and then in 2125. My question is about the timing of the transit, why it takes place when it takes place. It happens eight years apart and then doesn't happen again until over a hundred years, (if i did the math correctly). And also, is there any way a human can observe this transit of Venus when it happens again, without it burning your eyes out of your skull!?!?

A: The reason for the slightly strange pattern of dates of transits of Venus is because 8 Earth years is almost the same as 13 Venus years - but not quite. 8 Earth years is 2922 days and 13 Venus years is 2921 days. For a transit to occur, Venus must pass between the Earth and the Sun in early June or early December, which is the time of year when we see the orbit of Venus exactly edge-on. If the orbit were a solid line, we would see this line across the face of the Sun for a few days at these times. What we need is for Venus to come along at this time. Bearing in mind the 8 year almost-exact repetition, if we look at dates when Venus passes between Sun and Earth, we find: 10th June 1996, Venus passes just below the Sun. 8th June 2004, Venus passes across the Sun, below the centre. 6th June 2012, Venus passes across the Sun, above the centre. 3rd June 2020, Venus passes just above the Sun. So these dates take a long time to work their way round the calendar (there are actually 5 different dates, 19 months apart in the 8-year cycle) which is why transits are so widely spaced overall. You can observe it provided you take the same precautions as for viewing an eclipse. I watched the transit of Venus in 2004 whilst wearing solar eclipse glasses and I could see the little black dot quite easily.

when is the transit of Venus for Riyadh Saudi Arabia ??? please help? by Q: om i want to watch the transit of Venus . i know its this Wednesday (June 4 2012),and i know its after sunrise, but i don't know what time it starts and when it ends. i live in Riyadh Saudi Arabia, time zone UTC/GMT +3 hours Please help.

Venus Transit, Solar and Lunar eclipses and "alignment" of galaxy are not a bad omen? by Q: Vneus Transit (june 6th, 2012), the Total Lunar Eclipse (December 10, 2011) and Solar Eclipses (5/20/2012 & 11/13/2012) and also the "alignment" of the galaxy is not a super bad omen to the end of the world as we know it? I don't think that the world is going to blow up, or everyone is going to die, or that it is armagedon, but this only happens every 13,000 years. And if you go back 13,000 years, lots of stuff went whacky when this happened then. Just wondering...

A: the Total Lunar Eclipse (December 10, 2011) and Solar Eclipses (5/20/2012 & 11/13/2012) We've had three eclipses last June, remember? the "alignment" of the galaxy Alignment with what? Only people with no knowledge of science believe in omen. Given the widespread access to public education, you no longer have an excuse to have an european superstitious Dark Age era mentality. if you go back 13,000 years, lots of stuff went whacky when this happened then. Like what? People walking on their heads? Sheep eating wolves? Democrats and republicans getting along?

Are you going to observe the upcoming Transit of Venus? by Sparrowbird Q: So yes, the Sun will be conjunct Venus in Gemini on June 5th/6th... and we'll be able to see it this time! According to some things I've read about it, this observable Earth/Sun/Venus lineup is quite rare indeed and won't occur again until 2117. Are you going to observe it? Would you say this kind of Sun/Venus conjunction makes any difference astrologically when compared to other Sun/Venus conjunctions? For reference: http://www.foxnews.com/scitech/2012/06/04/transit-venus-offers-last-chance-views/ Thank you!

Can I take a picture of the upcoming Venus transit? by Q: I'm VERY interested in astronomy; as I plan to pursue it as a career. For the upcoming Venus transit on 06/05/2012, I already have a special lens for my telescope and some special glasses so that I can look at the sun during it. However, if I were to hold my camera up to my telescope and take a picture, would it be safe? Edit: It is a lens that attaches to the end of the telescope, and it does say 'aperture' on it. Thanks for your help!

A: If you have a full aperture solar filter which goes over the front of the 'scope then you can just put a camera up to the eyepiece and take a photo and it'll work. If your solar filter is the type which screws into the eyepiece then I suggest you destroy it as that type of solar filter is very dangerous (they have a tendency of failing in a way which lets the full intensity of sunlight into your eye, they're banned in most places after sending people blind but there are still some out there).

CAN I USE MY X-RAY PHOTO COPIES OF MY TEETH TO LOOK AT THE SUN, FOR THE VENUS TRANSIT? by Q: i want to watch the VENUS transit that is happening and well don't have money to but those fancy glasses or telescopes to watch the event. I saw a woman on the news that she used her x-ray copy to look at the solar eclipse few weeks ago. so experts of science can i use this same method for the venus event. JUNE 5 2012..!! TODAY!!!

Does anyone know what house Venus(which is in transit) is in right now? by fabiolapistola Q: venus is in transit til 2012, i was wondering if anyone would know what house it's in. My venus is in Gemini what would that mean?

A: Venus is in Virgo right now What House is in Virgo in your chart. VENUS In Gemini, Venus generates a need for a variety of experiences. You have a curiosity about people. You can become a social butterfly and something of a flirt. Open and friendly, your wit and conversational ability attract people with agile minds and keen intellects. Your restless and fickle nature inclines toward much travel and change of surroundings. A delightful sort of charm and expressiveness works well for you, if you can avoid a tendency to become a little bit superficial socially. You want to taste all that life has to offer. You find it especially hard to settle down to just one romantic relationship, preferring to make friends with everyone you meet. You have an excitable child-like attitude toward romance, approaching affairs with optimism and high-expectations. Yet encounters may be many and brief before you finally settle down. You are easily bored and it is hard to capture you romantic attention for long periods of time. Change and excitement is the spice of your love life, and a partner that doesn't understand this won't be around long. Mental stimulation the simple joy of being together is an absolute must for any relationship to have a chance of becoming permanent. With Venus in Gemini, you may not be able to be tied down too tightly. If you marry too young or to someone who is possessive, you may have serious problems. Your partner must understand your need for variety in social matters. After you marry and settle down, you may still need a variety of friends and social contacts.

How are you conducting the program for Venus transit june 4-6? by Q: When Venus passes directly between earth and the sun, we see the distant planet as a small dot gliding slowly across the face of the sun. Historically, this rare alignment is how we measured the size of our solar system. When is it? The next transit of Venus occurs June 5 or 6, 2012, depending on your location. Observers in North America see it the evening of June 5. This will be the last transit of Venus to occur in your lifetime.

where in alaska is the best place to see the transit of venus across the sun in 2012? by ydrogoteresa Q: my man and i would like to go take our kids to see this rare event .. so i need to know if anyone knows the best place to be when it happens...

A: Take a look at the map at this link. The best spot is as close as you can get to the dot labeled "Greatest Transit at Zenith". But unless you have special sun-viewing equipment, you will almost certainly be better off at a good astronomy location. For example, the Chugach Stargazer Society in Anchorage will be using their equipment, I expect. Try them at 907-269-7983. Or, you could ask the Anchorage Museum, since they have a new planetarium. Almost all the fun of watching the transit is talking the all the other people also watching!

Will the Transit of Venus that takes place in 2012 have any effect on Earths climate or tides? by Q: Please give source of theory. Thank you.

A: Venus passes between Earth and Sun roughly every 19 months, although usually above or below the Sun and not directly across the face of it. This is known as inferior conjunction. At the preceding inferior conjunction in October 2010, Venus is actually closer to us than in 2012 and it's closeness which determines gravitational effects, not whether the planet happens to pass in front of the Sun. In any case, the tidal effect of Venus at its closest is somewhat less than 1/10,000th that of the Moon, an immeasurably small amount. It can also have no effect on climate.

What does "Least angular distance at sunset" mean in this diagram of the 2012 Transit of Venus? by peftus Q: http://www.eso.org/public/outreach/eduoff/vt-2004/images/vt-2012-visibility.gif

A: It means the time that the separation of the centres of the two bodies is least. In other words, that will be when Venus appears closest to the centre of the sun's disc from our point of view. That dotted line shows the places on Earth where it will be sunset at the time of Venus being in the centre of the disc, or mid-transit.

What's your understanding of the transit cycle of Venus and situation of 2012? by Saggy MC the Ist Q: Watching some special on the History channel, it is mentioning the transit and cycle of Venus in regards to some 2012 situation in june. It also mentioned the eclipse? What is your understanding of this, with Venus in the picture

A: There will be a transit of Venus across the face of the Sun on June 5th - 6th 2012. The last one was in 2004 and the next will be in 2117. If the History Channel have anything to do with it, they'll probably claim the Mayans predicted it or it was foretold in the Lost Book of Nostradamus or some other such nonsense. They didn't and it wasn't.

Do you expect we will have another earthquake in 2012 following the Venus transit like we did in 2004? by claptic Q: The Venus transit in 2004 occurred in June followed by an earthquake in December. The Venus transit in 2012 will also occur in June followed by the popular Dec. 21 winter solstice end of the world date. I am told that anything that happens like a cosmic event at the center of our galaxy would take 50,000 years to reach us. We have been told that the Venus transit had nothing to do with the 2004 earthquake and devastating tsunami. What are your feelings since there are no facts?

A: "since there are no facts" - really... Fact: The USGS records THOUSANDS of earthquakes a year - in 2004 there were a lot more than one earthquake in December. Fact: there will be THOUSANDS of earthquakes in 2012, not just one in December. Fact: cosmic events at the centre of the galaxy would take about 26,000 years to be detected on Earth (not visible of course, since the centre is hidden behind thousands of light years of dust and gas clouds). Fact: The transit of Venus caused the sun's light to drop by a mere 0.001 magnitude, and any gravitational effect would have been equally negligible. The moon generates more gravity on the Earth than Venus does. My feeling is that people really should do some research and learn the facts.

Expect we will have another earthquake in 2012 following the Venus transit like we did in 2004? ? by Q: Do you expect we will have another earthquake in 2012 following the Venus transit like we did in 2004? The Venus transit in 2004 occurred in June followed by an earthquake in December. The Venus transit in 2012 will also occur in June followed by the popular Dec. 21 winter solstice end of the world date. I am told that anything that happens like a cosmic event at the center of our galaxy would take 50,000 years to reach us. We have been told that the Venus transit had nothing to do with the 2004 earthquake and devastating tsunami. What are your feelings since there are no facts?

A: Expect we will have another earthquake in 2012 Of course! We have earthquakes EVERY year. In fact, there are earthquakes happening every day, all over the world, ever since they started being recorded. That's what the Earth does. The Venus transit in 2004 occurred in June followed by an earthquake in December. So that one earthquake, which YOU didn't felt, happened when Venus was almost as distant from the Earth as Mars. Hmmm that's interesting; so then what's the relationship between Venus and one earthquake? Who's to say that the earthquake was caused by, say, a giant invisible spaghetti space monster floating over your house? http://www.venganza.org/ (You can't really prove that there wasn't an invisible spaghetti monster over your house.) I am told By who, if you don't mind me asking? anything that happens like a cosmic event at the center of our galaxy would take 50,000 years to reach us. Hmmm. I'm trying to think of a physical event that would travel at 60% of the speed of light from the center of the galaxy and only affect a small region on a tiny planet 30 thousand light years away from it. I don't know about you, but I'm coming empty. So please speak up. We'd really like to read what are your thoughts on the subject. Who knows, maybe we can convince your country's education system to stop boring children with all that science stuff in classes? We have been told Maybe to you only. I didn't get the memo. the Venus transit had nothing to do with the 2004 earthquake and devastating tsunami. Yeah, what would I know? Like doing something as simple as calculating the force caused by Venus on either side of the Sun relative to the Earth and figuring out home much bigger or smaller that is to, say, how much the Sun pulls on the Earth. That Newton's law of universal gravitation stuff is just sooo complicated... What are your feelings since there are no facts? My feeling is that you should pick a sheet of paper, a pencil and maybe a calculator, and see for yourself what is the force exerted by Venus on lower conjunction and on opposition, and compare that force to the gravitational pull of the Sun or the gravitational pull of the Moon. Otherwise, no matter how much we try to convince you, you'll just keep thinking to yourself that you're right. You'll give you a little help: - Gravitational constant: G=6.63E-11 kg N m^2 / kg^2 - Mass of the Sun: 1.99E30 kg - Distance of the Sun to the Earth: about 149.6E6 km - Mass of Venus: 4.87E24 kg - Closest distance from Earth to Venus: about 41.44E6 km - Farthest distance from the Earth to Venus: about 257.76E6 km (By the way, measurements are facts. So I'm missing what you mean when you say "there are no facts".) You might still remember how to use Newton's law of universal gravitation for a back-of-the-envelope calculation; otherwise, you can read, for example, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Newton's_law_of_gravitation . Compare the acceleration produced by Venus on a piece of ground to, say, the acceleration you'd produce on the ground if you'd jump from a chair and hit the ground with your feet. If you want to be more rigorous, you may want to try to calculate the acceleration from tidal forces. Here's a brief introduction: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tidal_force#Mathematical_treatment You can restrict yourself to the axial acceleration (in the direction of the Venus) and compare to, say, what would be the acceleration caused by someone jumping on the other side of the Earth. Let us know if you get stuck.

how close will venus be to the sun during the venus transit? by the Answer GUY Q: my question is exactly as stated above. I'm curios how close Venus will be to the sun during the June 5-6 2012 Venus transit? Please no end of the world answers either.... I am just an uneducated astronomy junkie.

A: Venus' orbit is so close to circular that any differences are insignificant. It won't be any closer to the Dun during its transit. It will just be passing between the Earth and the Sun, so we will see it as a small black dot crossing the face of the Sun from our viewpoint. "As Venus travels around the Sun, it ranges in distance from 107 million km to 109 million km. The average distance is 108 million km".

Venus transit 2012 tips? by Q: I really want to see Venus take its little course along the sun tomorrow but I need some tips I have solar shades to protect my eyes from burning out of their sockets :P but will it be visible with the naked eye or do I need a magnifier? If I do, is it safe to wear the shades and look through binoculars or a small telescope? If not could you give me some tips on how to view it safely? Thanks :) let's hope the weather clears up

A: Provided you have normal vision (or corrected to normal with glasses) you should have no trouble seeing Venus on the Sun with eclipse shades. I saw it quite easily in 2004 with just eclipse shades. Do NOT use the eclipse shades with binoculars or a telescope, as the Sun's heat will melt a hole right through the shades and right into your eyeballs!

Will I be able to see the 2012 Venus transit in June if I live in Virginia,USA? by Q: I really want to see this thing,and I hear it's the last of the century... I live in Virginia,off the east coast of the USA.

A: Yes, you should be able to see it on June 5th from shortly after 6 pm EDT until sunset. You will be able to see a black dot in front of the Sun by using a telescope to project the Sun's image. If you have welder's glass or eclipse sunglasses (ordinary sunglasses will not do) you should be able to see the black dot of Venus on the Sun directly without any other optical aid. PS. I could see the 2004 transit quite easily with the naked eye using eclipse sunglasses.

How to veiw the 2012 venus transit? by Q: What equpitment do I need and wher can i get it? I live in Wales, UK so what time and what day can I see it?

A: The very end of the transit will be visible from Wales at sunrise on June 6. If you're viewing naked eye you will need a #14 welder's glass or "eclipse shades" (available from telescope stores), or you can project the Sun using a pinhole in an northeast-facing window.

How to make the most of June 2012 Venus transit? by White Raven Q: The June 2012 transit of Venus across the face the Sun is in motion now and I read will not happen again until 2117. How big of a deal is this transit and what should we look to in order to maximize the potential of this transit while it lasts? What planetary position, such as a Venus sign, should one look to in his or her natal chart?

A: Venus is all about Love and health and it's powers will be amplified by the presence of Sun. Astrologers are saying this will be a defining moment in your love life. They predict that you will also see a pattern in your emotional dealing with your loved one. Make the most of it by celebrating your relationship or working on it if it isn't working for some reason. It is also a good time to reconsider your work-out regime. Business partnerships should also be mulled over. Out with the old and ineffective -- in with the new and efficient , seems to be the motto.
