We did it. We saw Venus in front of the sun and have the picture to prove it. See that little black dot below the black band from the tv? That's Venus. This event won't happen again until December of 2117. This was a once in a lifetime opportunity that we'd be silly to miss out on considering the observatory is a four minute walk from our house.
Now we can check that off our summer bucket list!
Did you see the transit? If you are local and interested in learning more about our observatory let me know. We have one of the best telescopes in the country that is available for the public!
