Venus Transit

Last Tuesday, Venus did something it won’t do again for another 105 years:

It passed between the earth and the sun, appearing like a tiny black dot, a beauty mark on the sun.

We took pictures of it just before sunset at the Flat Wind Energy Project.

Seeing Venus in front of the sun made me realize just how huge the sun is. I mean, Venus is just a dot there, even though it’s even closer to us than the sun.

Cattle, corn, wheat, beans, mud, snow, ice, and drought. Plenty of fresh air and quiet. Our life is sometimes heartbreaking, sometimes joyous, but never boring.
