On the 5th of June we are organizing a very special trip to the ancient Astrological Observatory Puñay for the Transit of Venus. Puñay is a pyramid constructed on the peak of a 3300meter mountain 2,400 years BC to worship the moon, stars, and sun.

The Transit of Venus will not happen again in our lifetimes, that is unless you plan to live until December 2117. As you can see from the map below the only countries in South Ameica to see the Transit of Venus will be Colombia, Ecuador, and Northern Peru. The Observatorio Astronómico de Quito has said the Transit will start at 17:06 right before sunset on the 5th.

Puñay has without doubt some of the most beautiful sunsets on the planet because of its location above the clouds. If we are lucky and the weather means a clear horizon we will be in for a really special afternoon for one of the worlds most incredible astrological events.
