transit venus

SO, I had been planning to actually get my old reflector out and make a little projector to watch a bit of the transit, before the sun set today. but, it's been days since the sun was out, so I never had any chance to test anything; actually, with no way to test a setup, and with the forecast looking like it was going to be the way it was, I didn't wind up actually putting any of the parts together.

In other words, it was too cloudy to see it from Boston.

I've been watching the NASA feed of it, it's better than nothing. I think the transit will be over soon; I'll stay up as late as I can to see if I can't see the planet crossing the limb.

That picture is awesome, right? NASA again.
