I have been looking forward to this for days. We may be able to see it where we are if the weather holds. Anyone making home made goggles or viewing devices?

I’ll be watching the last hour or so tomorrow morning at some god forsaken time (in the words of Bart Simpson there’s a 4_am_ now?) weather permitting.

I just went out and looked at it. This stuff just excites me!

Here are some really cool NASA videos of the event.

Here’s a super hi-def of Venus in transit from NASA. It looks as though there were various kinds of filters used, but I am guessing here.

Anyway, this is spectacular.
