Venus Transit

Gah! I meant to post about this yesterday as a heads up, and only remembered to do it now as this historic event is actually happening. Hopefully some of you will be able to catch it in time!

Venus is moving across the solar disc RIGHT NOW (between the Sun & the Earth so we see it), and it won’t happen again for another 105 years.

If you don’t have a telescope with a solar filter, or some hardcore sun-watching glasses – check out the various live streams of the event here:¬†http://venustransit.nasa.gov/webcasts/nasaedge/

Obviously this is not LEGO related, but you all know I’m a devout lover of science and space! So, check it out!
Here are some screenshots from the feeds I’m watching:

  1. So cool! Thank you for posting these! I got to see it…my Dad has welding goggles, and there’s a tiny dot visable when you look through those! :D

  3. Ah, my Lego man!
    I hope you’re going to ‘Lego’ the Transit somehow!
    I’ll be waiting for it!
    Thanks for providing much mirth and wonderment…as always.

    This was my ‘Transit’ experience!

  6. Thank you so much for giving those of us who could not see “love” passing by witness it, albeit second hand. Knowing that it is not gone forever from showing itself so vividly is good to know. I will be 166 years old when I get my next chance to see this particular route between the sun and us.. As much as things change and as quickly as they do so, perhaps I will still be around, a feisty old broad, still blogging (God help us all!). As Kolembo asks – a Lego version of your experience would be wonderful. I look forward to seeing that (notice how I am assuming you will do it? :lol: ) I enjoy your blog, have checked the “follow” box and look forward to visiting as much as possible.
