UPDATE FOR YA: Over the past few days, I’ve become an amateur astronomer. It’s true. Kind of. What I mean is that I’ve been covering the transit of Venus, a rare and spectacular cosmic event that took place yesterday in the skies over San Antonio (and other places, too, I guess).
If you’re curious, here are the links to what I’ve been writing for The Rivard Report:
- Don’t Miss This: The Transit of Venus: the first article, outlining the historical importance of transits, explaining some of the science, and highlighting a neat connection to San Antonio.
- Reflections on the Transit of Venus: a follow-up piece, written late last night after viewing Venus.
