Transit of Venus

This week we have been studying Venus.  We learned about Venus in our Astronomy book.  Froggy was fascinated by the volcanoes. I answered a zillion questions of would X melt if it was on Venus.
On Tuesday, we went to see the Transit of Venus at the Naval Observatory.  We hauled in even though the weather was dubious.  We could not actually see any of the transit due to cloud cover but the scientists gave us a great tour and showed us pictures of the Transit from another location where the cloud cover was not so heavy.  Froggy also got to look at very cool telescopes as part of a great tour of the Observatory.
