The Transit of Venus

Nick Lomb, longtime curator of astronomy at Australia's Sydney Observatory, gives a complete rundown of The Transit of Venus which is a rare astronomical event. Lomb has produced a beautiful book with over 140 photographs and illustrations that showcase the glory of the heavens. Lomb  explains the logistics involved in getting people and instruments to prime locations for astronomical observations and provides descriptive and moving stories of the triumphs and tragedies of the participants in accomplishing that goal.  The book is exactly what a great astronomy book should be: comprehensive, informative and accessible for lay readers. Terrific reading for all.
