Well, today was the big day and I got some great pictures from the event as you can see. I spent the afternoon with K-8 kids showing them the sun and the transit. My sun gun traveled to St. Andrews Catholic School where a fellow attorney’s child attends. They asked if I would be willing to show these youngsters the event and, well, I can’t say no to any request like that. I love help kids understand about the universe outside their windows. Luckily today there were also A LOT of sunspots making the display even better. I was only able to snap a couple of photos with my smartphone during the lulls, but I must say it worked pretty well. I was also able to get some images from home (thank the weather gods for a sunny day) so I will process them and, if any of them are good, I will post the results here for you to see. So did anyone try for the contest from Southern Stars? I would love to seen any pictures that you might have taken. I am exhausted, so its off to bed for me. A couple of hundred kids and an afternoon in the hot sun has done me in. Enjoy the photos.
