Press conference in Paris

On May 15th, scientists from OCA and OBSPM collaboration have given one last press conference at the Observatory of Paris. Starting with Venus transit’s background, they announced today’s expectations. Through these expectations, they created a new instrument: the Cytherograph that will help them to study carefully the aureole during the transit.
