So did you see it? Rain out here in Virginia. I would have loved to be at one of the Maya ruins to see it. I bet one of them is perfectly situated to track it through some opening. The Mayan's were WAY into Venus.

It was a bright sunny day with no cloud cover here.... Unfortunately our rudimentary card/pin/screen affair was sadly lacking in the technically well executed department. We could see the sun projected but very very blurred. No hope for seeing Venus. And that had nothing to do with the fact we were on the beach in front of Wayo's at the time :-) We're holding out for 23 Oct 2014 when there'll be a partial eclipse of the sun. Plenty of time to order in the welding mask/eclipse glasses...

We used a pair of binoculars and a white A4 card and that worked fine - worth remembering that for next time! If you are around that is!!
