In Search of Venus Transit

I didn't plan my Venus Transit viewing very well. Nearing sunset, I ran into the front yard and realized that with all the lush trees, I couldn't see the sun at all. I decided to strike out to find a viewing location. The mall's parking lot seemed to be the best choice, but I couldn't figure out how to get my quickly assembled pinhole camera to work. (I didn't think of taking a picture at that time.)

I had given up and was on the way back home when I saw a few people in a field by the side of the road. One of the spectators showed me the pictures he took on his camera... maybe there was a dot indicating Venus. Maybe not. I decided to go to Purity for some Chicago Soy Temptation Cookie Dough Ice Cream and to enjoy the sunset.



On a side note, my mother emailed me to ask, "Do you remember when you would identify Venus in the night sky?" I don't even remember knowing how to identify Venus. I wonder where I learned it and when I forgot.

Quotation of the Day: Game of Thrones Edition

When Daenerys Targaryen finds the traitorous Xaro Xhoan Daxos' vault empty, though she expected the merchant's wealth to finance her campaign to Westeros to regain the Iron Throne, she says:

"Nothing.... Thank you. Thank you, Xaro Xhoan Daxos, for teaching me this lesson."
