Solar Stuff

There have been a couple notable items in the atmosphere during the past few weeks. On May 20, 2012, there was a solar eclipse. We were up at Maga's (eating trifle) and no one seemed particularly interested in stepping outside to see if the eclipse could be seen through the cloud cover. Others did, and I borrowed the picture above of what it looked like ...

Others actually traveled miles (outside of Cedar City) to get the best view. A Facebook friend shared this photo taken by her dad, (photo by John Telford). That does look pretty cool! My brother Derek didn't make the trek, but said it was still better than the movie ... (slam on Twilight fans!) *Ü*

Then on June 5th, if people looked to the skies again they would be able to witness the "transit of Venus" ... that little black dot crossing the sun. This picture was taken by my friend's hubby. Photo by Robert Healey.

Although I didn't see either event live, I appreciated these pictures!
