Venus transit 2012


I have been waiting for this day for a loooong time.About a week ago,I checked the 10 day forecast and they predicted rain.Not being one to listen to what they forecast,I made my plans to watch the transit anyway.All I can say or ask is “Why do they now get the forecast right?.We have had rain and clouds for the past week and today,it actually looked like it would clear enough to watch the show.I did manage to get a few pix of the beginning transit but,quickly clouded over.Only when the sun began to set behind a mountain did the sun start peeking through the clouds.Oh well,I guess I had better find the fountain of youth to see this again!….sigh…
