Transit of Venus Answered

This evening was the last chance to see a transit of Venus in our lifetimes.  The next one won't be for another 100 years.

It was 100 degrees (~37 celcius) and we had storm clouds, but the clouds parted and I saw it!!!!  The hastily thrown together viewers worked and we knew it was Venus instead of dirt on the lens because the little black dot moved.  I took pictures of my set-up, but the macro feature on the camera was malfunctioning so no pictures of venus crossing the sun disc.

Anyone else get to see it?

Thanks, I guessed the wrong forum to post in my excitement.
