Parks life

There were loads of people in the University Parks.

There were three telescopes in operation using filters and one with a projections screen, along with various posters and things.

The queues for the direct observation telescopes were rather long, so I just haddled around the projection telescope.

The weather on the Sun today is clear and calm with only a few small spots.

transit? Where?!

This morning I tried the old pin-hole camera trick to view the transit of venus.. I failed.

I could either get a very small image of the sun on which I could see nothing or a larger, far more dim image which was far too dim to see anything on. Oh well.

I think I’ll pop over to the University Parks in a bit to see if I can find the public viewing thingy they’re having.
