hi folks, on june 8 there's gonna be a transit of venus across the sun (if you're standing on earth, those on other planets will have to await their turn!)

Apparently, it only happens twice every hundred or so years, eight years apart....heck go to the link- explains it beter than I can, there's a choice of a few live webcasts for those on the 'dark side of the earth' when it happens (that's those of you in US and Canadian timezones, where it'll be the middle of the night)

I'd reccomend to make use of the webcasts if you have the option to do so.

Mind your eyes when this event takes place by using very good optical protection (you will suffer from permanent eye damage if you look at it too long).

I'm going to follow it, it happens in western europe somewhere between 8 am and 1 pm coming tuesday.
Unauthorized Copying is not only forbidden, but will prey upon your conscience, spoil your sleep, destroy your complexion, and eventually will wind up turning you into the kind of person who drinks methylated spirits out of a bottle hidden in a brown paper bag, and who lives under bridges, burps noxiously, and prays day and night for release from the unsupportable burden their life has become. We thought you'd appreciate the warning.
Originally from a Neil Gaiman cd, so i might suffer from all the things mentioned above.
