Transit of Venus

The Transit of Venus is a rare astronomical alignment in which the disk of Venus crosses the face of the Sun as seen from the Earth.  This web page celebrates the recent transits in 2004 and 2012.  It shares MUSIC and DANCE composed for my wedding in 2013.  Click on the slides for some other links.
