I have been waiting for this transit for some time and was optimistic about the weather forecast. It actually turned generally clear with small light cloud scudding across the sky. There was a wind but it was the bubbly atmospherics - the Sun was low in the sky - that made it challenging. Thoroughly enjoyed myself. I hope anyone else who saw it got an enjoyment from seeing it too.
