Transit of Venus

Given that the next time this solar event will happen is in 2117 I figure it's definitely worth at least mentioning.

For those of you who may not be living in the right area, or who are stuck with crappy cloud cover and cant observe it, there's an online live feed Over on Wired.

And I took a photo.

See that black dot? That's Venus 41,840,000 km away and traveling at 35.02km/sec. Man space is amazing.
