Visit Worldwide Topsites

Monday, 4 June 2012

3 amazing Venus videos by telescope The second planet from the Sun.

      Venus continues to amaze me. At first time I noticed this planet through a telescope, I saw it small and difficult to distinguish, because of the atmosphere and distance from the Earth. I believed then that my telescope will never see it well, but apparently I was wrong. Now I see it clear as a crescent, big and beautiful.
      Venus has a diameter of 12,100 km, with about 1040 km in smaller than the diameter of Earth (95%). If it would be someone on Venus with a telescope, would see the Earth at about the same size as we see Venus from here.

     Average surface temperature of Venus is 462 ° C, about 9 times higher than on Earth. The surface pressure is 92 times higher than here, and the atmosphere contains 96% carbon dioxide.

     The clips below are organized in chronological order. On April 27th I had the sharpest images with Venus, in my opinion. I hope to have luck on June 6 transition to film the planet across the Sun, because clouds in this area are announced.
