“Transit of Venus March”

“On Tuesday, June 8, 2004, the first “transit of Venus” since December 6, 1882 will take place. In just over six hours, between 1:13 A.M. EDT and 7:35 A.M. EDT, the disk of Venus will pass in front of the Sun perceived, by those who can see it, as little more than a black dot silhouetted against the Sun’s bright glow.

The Library of Congress is pleased to join with NASA in celebrating this rare event, by providing access to the score and band parts of John Philip Sousa’s “Transit of Venus March.”
