Venus Transit

I managed to duck out of the office for a few seconds yesterday with Dev Ben to have a look at the transit. We just made it at 1:50pm, and could clearly see Venus in the bottom left corner. Amazing to have that kind of view of another planet. Ended up viewing through a welding mask and a pair of dark safety glasses underneath (welding mask long was good, but you just needed that little bit more). Very cool. Glad I had the chance.
