I should be sleeping now. Since I'm not, here is a url for watching venus going across the sun live from several different european observatories: |
In the Chicago area where I'm at it's still 1 1/2 hours away -- visible from my local sunrise, 5:18, until 6:26 am.
Wow, the Oslo 1 link above just had a great pic of venus against the sun through clouds. I'm glad I thought quick enough to grab that pic before the next one loaded. The clouds went away in the next picture and it wasn't anywhere near as dramatic a picture.
ok, I've seen the dot on the sun. Now bed time for me now.
