Too bad we are under cloud cover here Jacksonville. :(
 
Got to wait till dawn to see anything here and so far it's not looking promising as it's cloudy and puthering with rain!
 
I hate Florida even more right now. Completely overcast here. 
 
venus's hidden side is 460c where as the side that's facing us it's about -280c. wonderful, The next time it'll occur none of us today will be alive. perhaps just a few!
 
Yay! go Solar Dynamics Observatory! I'm watching the transit now on NASA TV!
 
We have clouds and rain here. Won't even be possible to see it.
 
watching it live on youtube thx google for letting us use ur awesome hangout app
 
Unfortunately we have overcast in Boston area.
 
日本の関東地区では曇りのため見えません。
中継してくれて嬉しいです。ありがとう。

Thank you - it's way too cloudy to see anything here.
 
Overcast here in weslaco, texas. Can't see a thing.
 
That's no planet.  "It's a space station."
 
i've been looking at the sun for a while, don't see it
 
It was cloudy, so I didn't catch the ingress but I see it now! Don't give up you people in cloudy areas. Hope abounds.
 
I think I'll catch the next one...
 
cooooooooooooooolllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll
 
Same for me. but  once its clear, perfect view, but you need some sort of eye protection
 
NASA is possible watching of Guatemala?
 
well,we can't see bugger all here in london....u.k...as it's 12.30 am.....it's nightime....even the moon is hiding....!!!...we'll just keep an eye on nasa...
 
so sad, but it will come out later in the morning (in london)
Cant wait for the olympics!
 
its cloudy in New York too, but be paitient

Too bad Montreal is cloudy at the moment.

If only! It is pouring here in Scotland and I don't think my boss regards this as a good excuse for a sick day! Jealous of all the stargazers who do catch a glimpse! Enjoy
 
it will be out until tomorrow, so dont worry!!!!
 
so i made the dumb ass move of trying to look straight into the sun to see it (with high end ray band sun glasses of course) still to bright to see Venus :(

Anyone got a pair of eclipse glasses i can borrow?

Total cloud cover here in Colorado. These feeds ate awesome, but not the same.
 
I did the same thing and now I can't see my phone
 
I discussed this post with 1 person in a hangout.
 
yep i see a dot and the sun. Very interesting. Spanks.
 
The Titans are passing each other
 
i tried to see it but i couldnt  it's to bright and a overcast i hope i live a 100 years to see it....  :( i used no glasses now my eyes hurt
 
mildly interesting. Doesn't anyone care about Space X anymore?
 
Too cloudy here in Mass. Bummed we couldn't see it.
 
Those of us terrestrially bound in bc can see only rain clouds :-(
 
Unfortunately and as usual we are misusing this due to cloud cover in Brooklyn NY. :(
 
Can this be watched from our homes without the need of a telescope?
 
mumumam....you seem very relaxed and chilled..!!!...am i missing out on something...???...and are you in london or new york...??¿¿¿.....
 
Cloudy here (southern Taiwan), too. :-(
 
It's way to cloudy in Roanoke Va
 
I discussed this post with 17 people in a hangout.
 
Watching, yes.  Amazing!
 
Heck yes I'm watching! Got the live feed on from Hawaii on one screen of my computer. I'm going outside soon!
 
ps. many times many scopes being used....

Next stop on the Venus transit is Mass Coronal Ejection.  Mind the gap.
 
Wasan't there one years back?
 
Cloudy in Philadelphia! :={(}
 
Planet Saturn crossing over The Sun
 
Cloudy in Guangzhou :(
 
Its pretty overcast in Dallas. We have the glasses but can't get enough magnification to see Venus. Still, we have the TV on, and that's nice.
 
Bing bing recto - that is because you must be blind already
 
First time I complain about Vancouver weather. Completely cloud covered! We could not see Venus transit and we don't gonna get another opportunity :(
 
Here in Texas, as always, blue open sky. The sun too bright to se anything. I did not have special glasses
 
I discussed this post with 2 people in a hangout.
 
At 7:15pm in Hays, KS, Venus was about 1/3 of the way across the sun.
 
just saw it... amazing! best astronomical event of my life. even trumps the full lunar eclipse on the winter solstice

i cant undestand, if you go to venus you will see the sun around twize the size of the sun here, but if you see venus from here you will see that the sun is around 10 times bigger than venus from this perspective? how is ti possibe?
 
Yes
I am going to watch it
And
I should see it at 5:50 am
I am happy
Thanks nasa
 
Yes...... My mom and dad came over with a welder helmet and we watched it together.  
 
I saw it on news while I was eating, it is AMAZING!!!
 
Cant see the transit but I managed to get blinded
 
Brooklyn Spille, yes I know, I'm so stupid I didn't get the glasses and I could not see anything, but, of course I'm going to say that is was wonderful.
 
Blasted clouds, go away! Don't you know there's a transit of Venus going on right now? Really! Ugh, impertinent condensation.
 
சூரியனுக்கு மச்சம் டேய்.........!

Went out and shared the experience with a friend's large telescope. Made my heart skip a beat to see something so rare. My view was not as good as the NASA one, but, much less expensive.

I guess it's a little better than the shot I got. lol

Well done, NASA. 
 
There has to be a better word than AWESOME to describe this!
 
It stinks I have clouds in my area
 
Saw it!! It was actually CLEAR here in Rochester
 
We can't see in chch because of snow, bugger!
 
Been overcast here for more than a week...no transit for Newfoundland
 
I use to look forward to learning about the planets when I was in grade school.
 
I Like. That make you known time is coming too a End
 
Can you imagine the temperatures on Venus? 
 
SDO images of the transit are by far the best
 
We got clear sight in hongkong despite some clouds.
 
Overcast in Florida - argh:(
I won't be around in 2117...

to bad we can't see the sun!

( #TooCLoudyHere :( )
 
I'd like to blame the overcast weather we had... but I really just forgot it was today, so didn't look... part of me is really sad... but at the end of the day, every moment is a once in a lifetime experience ... and you can cherish them all, or just let time slip by... I was with the people I love, out on a sailboat... I think that will have to do
