Visibility IV / V

Jorma Ryske, Etelä-Suomen kosmol. seura

Excerpts from the archive: Kai Forssen, Ari Mäkelä and Jorma Ryske from the Cosmological Society of Southern Finland noticed the passage of Venus on June 8, 2004 in Tavernkeng, Pyhännän, Northern Ostrobothnia. In the morning, when the overpass began, the sky was completely cloudless. Later in the morning the clouds increased and a few raindrops and hail dropped from the sky. The end of the overpass was viewed from the cracks of the clouds.

In addition, a couple of overviews of the play organized by the Cosmological Society of Southern Finland in the village of Tavastkengä on the Anttom farm.
