DIVISION XII / COMMISSION 41 / WORKING GROUP TRANSITS OF VENUS

  • Hilmar W. Duerbeck, Steven Dick, Robert van Gent, David Hughes, Willie Koorts, Wayne Orchiston and Luisa Pigatto...

Extract

The previous Transits of Venus Working Group report #6, covering the time mid-2006 to mid-2009, was published by the undersigned in the Journal of Astronomical History and Heritage, Vol. 12, p. 254 (2009). The present report #7, covering the time up to mid-2011, has been prepared for the Reports presented at the IAU General Assembly in Beijing, August 2012. It is expected that after a flurry of publications before and after the transit of 2012, the activities in the field will drop dramatically, and it is planned to terminate the activities of the working group after the Beijing General Assembly, and to write a closing report for the subsequent General Assembly.
