Quote I've been waiting to get a chance to see a venus transit for quite a while now. When I woke up (at 03.30 in the morning) it was cloudy and I understood that the chances for me to see the venus transit were pretty slim. Together with my friend Leif and his girlfriend we set up our telescope and waited for the clouds to clear. Finally we got some clear view of the sun for about 15 minutes. This was enough for us all to take a look and also take some pictures of the venus transit. See the other picture here Quote
