Transit of Venus

The weather has changed dramatically here; after a gorgeous weekend camping in Applecross where it stayed dry the whole time, it doesn't seem to have stopped raining since I got back to Inverurie! As a result I most definitely didn't see the transit of Venus today as I didn't see the sun at all... however, I did see the one back in 2004. The next one won't occur until 2117 so I guess I won't be seeing that one either.

This was an early digital image from well before I got a digital SLR, showing the sun being projected through a telescope onto a piece of paper, with Venus clearly visible.
