Transit of Venus

June 5, 2012
New York City, 68th Street Pier, Riverside Park South


Me and my Sun Funnel attached to my trusty Galileoscope. Photo by Maeve Richmond. I did a LOT during the Transit of Venus in New York City, and got a lot of publicity. I created an event on the waterfront and was able to see it. We had about 600 people show up. If it was clear, we would have had thousands.
