The Venus Transit (a quickie blog post)

It’s super late, but we just got home and got the girl to bed… so this is going to be a quickie blog post.  LOL

There was too much cloud cover here to see much tonight – as has seemed to be the way the last several times there’s been something cool going on “up there”.  But we did watch some of the live feed, which was pretty darn cool.  Did you get a chance to see any of the Venus Transit?  What did you think?  Pretty darn neat to know the last one was in 1880-something and the next one won’t be until 2117 (I think?).  🙂  Just imagine what our world will be like by then!

Here are a couple links on the goings on – including one to the live feed.
