I watched the NASA web broadcasts for an hour up to about 00:30 BST last night, then got up to see the last 2 hours of the transit broadcasts.Some interesting reports from Hawaii, Alaska, Mount Wilson,Norway, Australia, including a showing of the broadcasts in Much Hoole church (Jeremiah Horrocks) and Owen Gingerich using an Alvan Clark refractor on Mount Wilson. I saved a few screenshots.Mist and cloud here this morning, so no chance to see my 2nd transit of Venus, although there is a transit of Mercury on 2016 May 9, visible from the UK. Alex.
