We had perfect weather to see the transit of Venus today. I took my telescope and solar filter down to Mark’s house and had some fun with Jack and Abby. They both have now seen the transit and know that they won’t see it again, unless they live to 117 and 113 respectively.

All set up

Jack trying for a picture

Abby checking it out

After moved positions to avoid some trees

Jack got good with the telescope

Getting a last look

And here are the best pictures that I got. Not great, but I’m happy with them.

Pretty cool

Overall slightly better
