We saw it walking out of kickboxing. Pretty cool.

Incidentally, Fife mentioned the Transit of Venus.

Looks like it will be a pretty cool display on June 5.

Clear skies, clean air and light pollution is illegal.
That last part is really cool.  Step out in the backyard and night, look up and you actually see stars.

Overcast skies here tonight. But the event I'm looking forward to is the conjunction of Venus and Jupiter on March 13th or so. Venus has slowly been getting closer to Jupiter. Those will be two, close, bright points of light in the evening sky.
