No, I won't be watching it. The last lunar eclipse was on the wrong side of the planet too, and I napped through the webcast that I had bookmarked. |-) Oh well. It is STILL Cool!ludes98 said:Happening, but you won't be watching it. No transit for me either.
Still, even with a properly protected 'naked eye', the disk of Venus is just too small to observe directly. The best way is to use a telescope and project an image of the sun onto a light colored wall or screen. We did this during a partial solar eclipse back in high school.Zoning Goddess said:Our science center in Orlando is open for folks to view it between 6 and 8 a.m. tomorrow. Too far, too early for me, but I would like to see it.

Yeah, and they use those weird square charts. ;-) Of course, I am still adjusting to my professional software, where the signs move and the horizon and zenith are fixed points. I am used to the signs being fixed and the horizon and zenith rotating. Of course, that was a hand-drawn paper sytem. :-D But, I do like having all the calculations and stuff done for me.Doitnow!! said:No Michele!
You are not the only one. But I give more emphasis on the astronomy aspect and less astrology, although in India, Astrology is practised from ancient times and it is a very well developed subject and has many followers.
