Transit

It's pitch black and pouring with rain outside, but I'm watching Venus march across the face of the Sun.

The moment anyone announces that an interesting astronomical phenomenon is about to happen, the sky clouds over here and the rain begins. :(

I'm just resigned to watching these things on TV or on the computer.

I know! It was thick cloud here at sunrise (and anyway the sun would have been somewhere behind the hill). I did once get to watch a Mercury transit -- the 1999 one, which was only just a transit at all -- in the image from a giant solar telescope at Kitt Peak, projected on a table.

Reading, writing, plant photography, and the small details of my life, with digressions into science and computing.
