@CriticalAlpha (Critical Alpha) Feeling direct connection to James Cook. Just used sextant to observe transit of Venus. Magic!
@malevolency (Cait Larcombe) Venus is crossing the sun? Pffft, I'll be more impressed when Jupiter does it.
@lukeyg (Luke Gibbons) It's amazing to think that this little black dot in front of the Sun is an entire planet!
@franksavaglio (Frank Savaglio) Cook's Endeavour voyage. The measurments to do with transit of Venus just part of its output
@willplatten (Will Platten) Bloody paper, when you tell me not to look at the sun to see Venus pass what's the first thing I do? #blindedbythelight #caniborrowalabrador
@embws (Dr Emma) Can spot many transit of venus observing stations on science department roofs at @unimelb. So many geeks w telescopes.
