“From the rising of the sun to it’s setting,
the name of the Lord is to be praised.”
Exactly a year ago, we were settling into our new life here in Hawaii. The sun was setting on our first trip to the beach about a mile from the place we now call home.
School doesn’t start until Sep.4 but I wanted to include a field trip in this blog that we took at the beginning of the summer to the Natural Energy Lab here in Kona. On June 5 they set up a viewing station where people could safely view the transit of Venus across the face of the Sun. There were special telescopes to look through and NOAA was handing out nifty little viewing glasses which we took home to view the rest of the transit through. Seeing that tiny spec of a planet dwarfed by that huge glowing orb really helped put some perspective on our own planet’s size in relation to the sun. The next transit will be in 105 years!
