The Transit of Venus – Part 2

Allan and Barbara Timcke talked to us about the planet and it being smaller than the sun. Venus is smaller than the sun. Rosie’s grandpa was writing about Venus.


Some people were rushing to have a look in the special telescope. It was called a solar scope. But we couldn’t have a look because it was really cloudy.
We went outside and we stood around the table, waiting for the sun to come out. We had some pieces of string and we pretended they were planets. There was a little ball for each planet. The strings were not the same length, some were short and some were long.

The Transit of Venus

We yelled at the sun to come out!! When we came inside we looked at it on the internet.

What we had hoped we would see

 

Daddy showed me on the phone and Venus went from the black to the side of the sun.
