My post on GeekMom today includes a photo of a crescent Venus. I was surprised and thrilled to see it when I peeked through the telescope!
And I failed to mention in the post that as I was setting up the telescope, I saw a good-sized meteor fall straight down! It was an amazing night for viewing.
If you're in the path of the eclipse tomorrow, go out and take a look (but safely). And next month, almost everyone will get to watch Venus make a transit across the face of the sun. Exciting!
