Sic Transit Gloria Mundi
Found my trusty shade 14 welding filter where it had craftily been stowed after some past solar eclipse. If you have similar eye protection, be sure to watch for today's transit of Venus commencing around 4:05 pm, MDT.

Of course, as is usual for momentous astronomical events, our skies shall be completely covered with clouds. Oh well, it will happen again in 2117!
