After a day of rain yesterday it cleared up beautifully today so James and I sprang the boys from school at lunchtime and took them up to Mt Stromlo to look at the transit of Venus. The had about five telescopes set up including one sensitive enough to see the solar flares. Very cool. The boys were discussing the fact they were aiming to be alive for the next one.
