    June 6, 2012

    The 6.5-hour transit of Venus in front of the Sun took place during the night of 5 to 6 June 2012. The final part of this transit could be seen from Europe only on June 6th right after the sunrise (between 05:50 and 06:55) when the Sun was still very low on the horizon. The Picard satellite did not experience any of the constraints resulting from the observer's point of view on Earth. Since its launch date on June 15th, 2010, Picard never stopped observing the Sun.

    Publishing date:

    December 16, 2004

    The Sun and its impact on Earth’s climate is a topic of prime importance. The Picard project was first proposed in 1998 by the aeronomy laboratory of the French national scientific research centre (SA/CNRS). On 3 December, the CNES Board of Directors decided to authorize this project frozen since 30 April 2003, in line with the recommendations of its Science Programmes Committee. It will go live in 2008.
