A great video of the Transit of Venus.

I feel dreadful from this cold.  But this was cool enough to clear my head for a few seconds.

A great video of the Transit of Venus.

    Also cool: Cassini is going to try to observe a transit of Venus from Saturn.

    Thank you, Father. Have been looking for one like that all day.

    Was interested to see the Sun’s surface seething behind the third run.

    Heal, Sir Priest!

    Thanks! It was cloudy in my neck of the woods and I was unable to vie it in “real time”.

    What a cool video!
    Venus looked like a bowling ball as it passed in front of the sun!

    We here in College Station are in the middle of a double coincidence. Not only did we heave the Venus fly-by, but the ISS is flying visible 13 times during this week alone!

    Sic transit gloria Veni.

    Try, “Sic transit gloria Veneris.

    Regardless, wonderful video, Pater reverende!
