The weather in the city is still crazy, just as usual, that's why I wasn't sure we would be able to see it from here. That's also why I started browsing online to see if there was any other way to see it. Well, of course there was. I found tons of live streaming websites that were showing the whole thing.
From the Huffington Post:
"Skywatchers around the world readied their telescopes and grabbed their solar shades on Tuesday and Wednesday to catch a glimpse of the transit of Venus, a phenomenon that won't occur again until 2117.They talked about it all over the news as well:
For nearly 7 hours, Venus moved between the Earth and its closest star, making the Sun appear to be punctured by a small black dot. It was visible from the ground in most of the world except for western Africa, southeastern South America, Portugal and parts of Spain, according to NASA." You can read the whole entry here.
To be honest, I could not see it with my own eyes. First of all because at that time I had class, and secondly because I wouldn't have had the proper equipment and I'm quite fond of my eyes. However, I'm taking enough care of myself, so I'm pretty confident that I will still have a second chance to see it in 2117, when I will only be 128 years old.
Here are some New Yorkers trying to see the transit across the cloudy sky:

I hope everything is fine! Thanks for reading and see you soon!
