    Default Transit of Venus

    Anybody else watching Venus pass in front of the sun? Live Nasa feed. I guess it won’t happen again until 2117. I'm kinda surprised no one has started a thread about this. I find stuff like this humbling, a reminder of how small we are.

    Astrological implications here. Resolve unresolved issues while the gettin’ is good! (I think that’s what it means, I really don’t understand astrology.)

    Yeah, I got my $2 glasses this morning and am periodically checking the sun. Have to look hard to see Venus - wish I didn't need to blink. But it's a clear day where I am and I have a good view.

    I was really motivated to observe this directly seeing as I won't be around for the next one.

    I taped some dark filters on my 15X binoculars in order to view it live. It didn't look that impressive, but at least I saw something I will never see again.

    Can't see. The sun was too damn bright. I need to wear shades.
    An argument is two people sharing their ignorance.

    A discussion is two people sharing their understanding, even when they disagree.
