Tahiti, the largest island in French Polynesia, was discovered by Samuel Wallis in 1767. Bougainville visited the island in 1768 and was impressed by the kindness and way of life of the natives. Astronomer Charles Green joined Captain Cook's expedition and successfully observed the transit of Venus there in 1769.
