Fast forward EIGHT years! This last week the second of the two transits that we will see in this lifetime occurred. Like bookends I looked back and reminisced over the eight years that have been capped by these events. (I'm like that with astrological events and rare occurrences :-) I am amazed at all that has happened, and now I have my own kids to play with. That said - the scientist in me was super excited to share this event with my boys. Needless to say I hyped it up all day. Miles and I talked about planets, and the sun, and our place in the universe. You know, you're usual topics of conversation with two year olds.
So when the time arrived we went outside with my welding glasses and...
...Michigan delivered with some of your typical lake effect cloudy skies!
(And thanks to technology we sat down and watched this unbelievably beautiful video from NASA and we got to see it for ourselves!)
