Transit of Venus: A sight for sore eyes

Those of us in Gisborne yesterday were among the lucky few in New Zealand who got to observe the Transit of Venus yesterday. It was a very special day out at Tolaga Bay where the locals treated us to amazing hospitality. Here are some photos…

Look carefully at about 5o’clock on the image of the sun for the small dot that is Venus…
