Hi all, new to the forum but not to science! As all of you probably know, the transit of venus event is coming up on June 5th and 6th and what better way to witness this historical event by building a sun funnel! The sun funnel will allow a large group of people to view this event by using rear-projection screen material. You can check out Rick Fienberg's guide to building a sun funnel for step-by-step instructions!! The key element to safely viewing the sun and to building the sun funnel is the Da-Lite High Contrast Da-Tex rear-projection material. The material is also linked in Rick's guide to building the sun funnel. They have free shipping and a great price and there is still plenty of time to get it before this once in a life time event! Who here plans to see it? I know I am!
