The Transit at Night

As I write (just after 1am) it's not possible to watch the much-hyped transit of Venus.

That's because it is night here - my view of the Sun is being blocked by the planet I live on.

I know it's happening though because I'm seeing the live feeds and Twitter activity.

And just to double check, I fired up the planet app on my iPhone and pointed it at the floor. Here's what I saw:


The App is called The Night Sky.

There's a limited chance for me to see the transit at sunrise, but I'm pretty sure UK clouds won't permit that!

Oh, and here is the preview video we made for Sixty Symbols (which was tweeted by YouTube today!)
