    I am leaving work early today to try and capture the transit. Here in the southeastern US, we can only see a couple of hours worth at the beginning (first contact). Of course it's raining and cloudy ATM... :wall:

    Any ARP'ers going to observe/photo?

    Do NOT look at the sun without special filters. :cool:

    The lunar eclipse was a no-show over here because it was really cloudy. Hopefully, this isn't the case tomorrow cause we will have to wait until December 2117 to see the next Venus Transit! :D

    Here's a helpful world map of visibility (NASA).

    I saw that just now in my workplace. The students placed telescopes with filters.

    That visible small black circle is indeed, Venus. :whistle:
