Astrobob: Transit of Venus a huge hit across the country

It was awe-inspiring to watch a planet step in front of the sun Tuesday. I hope all of you had success in your observations of the Venus transit. I drove down to Moose Lake, Minn. (about 45 miles south of Duluth) to join my friend Glenn Langhorst for two bowls of homemade chile and one very tasty transit. Glenn had his 4-inch refractor ready to go when I pulled up. 10 minutes later my own 4-inch scope was on its legs and ready to run.
