The Transit of Venus… The After Party

I’d like to personally say thanks to Andrew Cooper over at The Darker View for providing live commentary from the Keck Telescopes up on Mauna Kea today of the Transit of Venus.

I was truly watching the broadcast on and off all day and I think Cooper and the Keck’s coverage was much better then the actual NASA footage of the event.

If “Men are from Mars and Women are from Venus”… I’m wondering when it will be the guys day for some serious exposure?  All us Martians are pretty jealous of the Venutians!

Here are screen shots I took from the Keck Website today:



Last Nights Moon and Jupiter… and UFO’s?

Thanks to the hattip from Andrew Cooper over at the Darkerview, I pulled my butt off my chair and went outside and caught these pictures of the Moon and Venus Jupiter last night:

Of course… I’m using a junk camera so in the picture above… Venus Jupiter looks like a UFO.

Here is a better picture that I was able to take… Not bad considering I’m a few miles away using a $100.00 camera?  LOL
