I saw in 2004, but in the UK we can’t see this year.

Science-Based Life

Today, I got to see a once in a lifetime event–the transit of Venus. Of course, I did it in style.

There are many reasons why this event is important to science, but personally, it was important to me.

It was a chance for me to actually witness an astronomical event with my own eyes. It literally was a once in a lifetime experience, and I am grateful to have had it. It made me feel small, it puts the universe in perspective, and I realized that this is what science feels like. And it feels good.
