Transit of Venus

Travellers on the Thameslink this morning may have seen me wearing some silly-looking shades over my normal glasses this morning, and probably looking like a bit of a nutter. It's all in a good cause though. I've been watching the transit of Venus. It's still going on as I type. Looking through my solar viewing shades, it looks like there's a tiny black speck at the bottom of the sun. It's not visually stunning, but it's still pretty cool to be able to watch Venus passing between us and the sun.
