Transit of Venus
So the lesson I’m learning here is that if I send a picture to the blog from my phone, I only get one and I can’t say anything about it except in the title. Wonder if I can tweak how the blog treats MMS messages somehow.
Anyway, let’s get the other, slightly better picture up here.
I made these using a cheap little pocket spyglass to project the image onto a sheet of paper, and my cheap little cell phone. Technology is awesome.
I’d have liked to get a better image, but I had no way to lock down the little scope and couldn’t hold it still enough for good photography. I had an awful time focusing because this managed to happen on a rare windy day and my paper kept trying to fly away. Still, that I could do it at all is pretty cool, especially since I could send it to the blog from outside. We live in fascinating times!
