Creating a live digital, temporal and historical link between The 2012 observation of the transit of Venus in Hawaii and the village of Much Hoole – site of the 1639 observation by Jeremiah Horrocks.

We are using the live feed of NASA’s observation of the Transit in Mauna Kea, Hawaii. This will be projected inside St Michaels Church in Much Hoole. A clarinet and saxophone duet, composed by Julia Usher, will be performed in the church between 1st and 2nd contact and again between 3rd and 4th contact. At these points we will be broadcasting the audio from the church back to Hawaii through NASA TV and this stream will be available across the world.
