Marquesas Islands 2012 Venus Transit Expedition

Air Tahiti sponsoring

Air Tahiti provided us with much support by offering a 50% rebate on the freight charges and a very favorable rate for our air tickets. Hopping between islands in the Marquesas is not cheap, and reaching the arhipelago from Papeete is not either!

Here are two pictures recognizing their help.

On Nuku Hiva

With the students of the Taiohae Collège in our stargazing activities...

On Ua Pou

Here we are at the airport ready to leave the island for Ua Huka, with the pilot and co-pilot of the Twin Otter, and the airport staff.
