    Great photos Lance, but this is the second one for most people. There was another one in 2004

    great pics Lance!

    Probably none of us reading this will live to see the next one, but I read something interesting lately..
    An article about how humans are living longer all the time, said that "The first person to live to 150 years old has probably already been born!"
    2117 is only 105 years away...its very likely that a few children who watched the transit today, will actually live to see the next one!

    Wondeful pics! I don't have the equipment or patience to try this, nor did we have the clear skies here. Who knows, maybe more of us will live to see the next one than we think, or science may be wrong again on predictions? Be optimistic!
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    well..the next transit of Venus in 2117 isnt a prediction or a guess..its a known fact!
    so science definitely isnt wrong about that..these kinds of things scientists easily work out with great accuracy..
    but yeah, some of might make it! you never know..

    Enjoyed the transit, and loved seeing your photos lance. I found the live feeds to be fascinating also.

    Anyways, just quoting this up so it won't be lost in the other pages...

    All I got photo wise, kinda a scrub, no pics of the transit itself, but some of the sun...



    Note the stars around the sun...

    Fun stuff, really liking the online views.
