What you saw was the planet Venus.

Dale took a few pics of Venus in transit.

We went to the Naperville Astronomy Club’s meet-up. Dale is a member and several of the club members had their day time telescopes set up with little projectors so everybody could get a peak at Venus as it made it’s tiny black dot way across the sun. This is a telescope (and its owner) outfitted for solar viewing. The yellow thing? Sun. The big black dot? Venus.

Being the total dork that I am, I spent the whole  afternoon reciting scenes from one of my favorite X-Files episodes.

After staring at Venus through a variety of devices that would keep us from burning our eyes out our sockets? We got sushi with our friend Anne.
