A Box of Venus
As I read the headlines and saw the news article about watching Venus cross in front of the sun, I thought to myself,"I wish I knew someone who would go through the trouble to make one of those boxes to watch the event live." but alas I knew no one. But wait, as I walked the dogs through the park this evening I came across a neighbor who did take the time and was diligently following the sun's progress along the grass with his cardboard box and lenses set up to project the image. And as I watched, Venus moved across the image of the sun reflected on cardboard. Too cool for school!!
