June 6, 2012 Venus Transit Observation and Images by Filipino Astronomers

I’m very proud of my fellow Filipino astronomy enthusiasts and amateur astronomers who have successfully observed, documented, and imaged the Venus transit while sharing the experience to everyone!

The Venus transit was visible for 6 hours in the Philippines! For this reason, the event was well documented as reported in the following articles:
