transit of Venus

A conference for mapping and surveying nerds is always great fun if you are one. We even had a special solar scope available for watching the transit of Venus. These were made and given out to Schools by my Professional body, the Surveying and Spatial Sciences Institute. Way Cool!
 This is about as deep onto the face Venus got, since it transcribed a bit of a U in one corner through the course of the day. We had really perfect conditions after a very dark week, lucky.
After a long but interesting day, sunset over Cairns, with lots of bats (all those dark blurs)
