Venus Dances Across The Face Of Sol


That's VENUS transiting SOL our star.  I have absolutely no doubt you're aware of and waiting to watch this rare event.  June 5th into 6th, starting at sunset.  Use caution.

Please DON'T stare into the sun.  Using sunglasses won't protect your eyes either.  Use binocs or a scope and direct the image onto a piece of paper, you won't miss a thing. 

This bird crossing the path of Sol was captured 8 years ago in Indiana at the last transit.  Whew!

I watched it with my son and granddaughter. Our grandchild is only six but was mesmerized. I was as taken with her reaction as what I was viewing.
Stopping by to thank you for the comment you left in my Spiritual journal. I appreciate you stopping by and (greatly) appreciate your advice. Thanks and hugs. Sorry I've not been by. With husband on hospice it's tough to stay on top of things.

Hey, it was good to get your recent comment on my blog. I'm delighted to know that I'm not the only silent movie aficionado.
I haven't heard about the Venus dance, but I'll be looking for it!

Alas, I shall sleep this one out. I'll stop by here for an update. :)

Hi Kathy. I just now discovered you'd left a comment in my Just For Today blog. You mentioned that you'd like to read what I and others have created. I'd love to share a couple with you but don't have your email address. If you would be so kind as to send it I'll send you something I've written.
It is nice to be in touch with you again. I lost contact with so many people after we moved. Hope all is well with you and those you love.
