A Transit of Venus

Today I went to the Fuertes Observatory and watched Venus pass in front of the sun, despite the clouds.  It was so cool!

A strange person took Ken's special sun-watching glasses without much explanation. He just walked up and tugged them out of Ken's hands and then said,

"He's really excited about looking."

We looked confused and desirous of clarification.

"You guys have more than one."

And then he walked away and handed them to a small child. I'm not opposed to sharing things with small children, but it was a very odd way of handling the situation. He literally pulled the glasses out of Ken's hands before saying a word.
