Re: Any sightings of the Venus transit?

I did the binoculars trick (see the "total eclipse" thread) and it worked great when the clouds cooperated. The orb was pretty small and hard to see, so focus was key. But a good teachable moment when you explain that Venus is (roughly) the same size as the Earth.

Didn't try snapping a picture because it's hard to hold steady.
