Venus Alert

Venus Alert

Yes: Venus! A thoughtful neighbor stopped by with black glasses from Griffith Park Observatory and told us that Venus is currently visible crossing the sun. My son and I jumped outside with glasses plus the Nikon and the big lens and every filter in the house. It took us several tries, but here it is, clearly visible, via the Nikon and via my NX70U plus the solar goggles. See it now or wait 105 years. Awesome!
