Sydney transit of Venus under a blue sky
Here’s a shot of visitors getting a clear view of today’s transit of Venus. It wasn’t always clear – but the clouds parted often enough that visitors were able to get clear views from either our many solar telescopes or solar binoculars or through their solar specs. There was also a live video feed from our north dome telescope and a recreation of the 1874 transit of Venus observation which took place in our south dome with the same telescope, by the Government Astronomer, H. C. Russell.
