Venus Transit

Venus cruised in front of the sun today. Here is a photo of it...

We looked at it with a setup similar to the solar eclipse. Hold up binoculars a few feet from a flat surface, point at the sun, and focus.

This way, you can see the sun without burning your eyeballs out out of your skull!
