Transit of Venus 2012

It was said that Australia was going to be the best place to view the entire transit of Venus.

Getting the telescope ready

Unfortunately, the weather wasn’t really good enough.

Cloudy with no chance of seeing the transit.

The next one won’t be until 2117.

  1. I’m sorry you missed it. 😦
    We had mostly cloudy weather too, but the western sky was clear half an hour before sunset so we got to look through our eclipse glasses and see the tiny speck on the sun for a couple of minutes (except my 7yo son, he couldn’t find it so he’s going to an eye doctor ASAP).
    Except for solar eclipses, these kind of events tend to be rather underwhelming. So there’s a tiny dot on the sun for a couple of hours and there won’t be another one like it for 105 years, big whoop.
    Like Psalm 19 says, the heavens talk without speaking.

  2. I agree solar eclipses are more awesome.

    We watched the transit on the internet instead.
