Venus

Anyone get a good view?
Between clouds with the aid of an arc-welding mask and a telescope, can claim to have seen it, but just looks like sun-spots to me.

Also some good pics on C4 News tonight.  Apparently it was visible on Blackheath Common.

Re: Venus

I'd like to echo Strat's comment to Jim. Makes you wonder why earthbound folk struggle to watch it as it happens with superb imagery like that.
Never mind Venus, they are some tremendous shots of the Sun in different "lights" and filters.
Well posted Jim thank you.
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.
