Venus crossed the sun today. It will be 117 years until she does it again. We went to the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History to use the telescopes provided by the Fort Worth Astronomy Club to view the transit.

I worked at the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History in the Planetarium doing the star shows on weekdays 24 years ago. It has been over a decade since I last visited the museum. It’s changed greatly. I got lost and had a hard time finding my old landmarks. I’ll miss the rotunda, Major Worth’s life-size portrait and dress uniform, and going down the ramp lined with handmade crazy quilts of years past.

Three virtual caches and one multi-step cache are found in the immediate vicinity. We ended up walking nearly a mile, looking at the telescopes and gathering geocache information.

About scribedscribbles

Like most people, I hate filling out profile pages. Who am I? Well, I’m a wife, teacher, daughter, and friend. I’m also an intellectual, an introvert, a night owl, and a bookworm. I work with struggling readers and overachievers, ages 11 to 15. I take care of students, a cat, two rabbits, friends, and my husband. I enjoy geocaching, reading, volksmarching, gardening, crocheting for charity, lecturing, science fiction, learning, and teaching. My favorite colors are blue, green, and purple. I am judgmental, dyslexic, sweet, overweight, graying, short, generous, loving, supportive, and chronically early to meetings. I’m afraid of snakes, putting my head underwater, heights, depths, and failure.
