Transit of the Sun by the ISS and Space Shuttle

This post (from the SPA forums) first alerted me to the chance of seeing the ISS and the Shuttle transit. While the path didn't come anywhere near where I live I was hoping that someone might be able to catch the event.

APOD has delivered a fine example.


Blame the weather

Oh no, not another weblog about astronomy. Blame the weather -- it's been pretty awful around here for the past couple of weeks with no real chance of dragging out the 'scope.

The idea behind this weblog is that it'll run along side my observing logs, the emphasis being non-observational stuff. I'll try and post experiences, details about any new equipment, books, etc...
