Venus that is. Across the face of the sun. Jim and I were able to use the special glasses we bought for the eclipse a couple of weeks ago to see Venus. It was hard to see because it was really really small but we could watch as Venus passed over the sun. There was no way I could get a picture of it so I found this one on line and this is what it looked like when we saw it. Except that Venus was in the 2:00 position for us.
“Transits of Venus are among the rarest of predictable astronomical phenomena. They occur in a pattern that repeats every 243 years, with pairs of transits eight years apart separated by long gaps of 121.5 years and 105.5 years. The next transit will be in the year 2117.”
We’ve sure been rocking and rolling today and soooo happy we were not on the road. The wind has been blowing all day and a few gusts that had to have been 50 mph or more. Now tonight the wind is a breeze and the temperature has dropped to 67 degrees.
Thursday morning and we’re getting ready to head out. It is only 37 degrees and I am running the heat full blast. Where are my winter clothes?
