Like Watching Paint Dry

I was planning to watch Venus transit the Sun this evening. After dinner, I took my telescope outside, but the western sky was overcast and it did not look like it would clear up before it got dark.

So I went inside and checked the NASA Television channel on the old Sony and there was the Sun with a small dot at about the 1 o'clock position. Two hours later, it is at about the 3 o'clock position.

It is like watching paint dry, but I find it more interesting than most of the other fare on the hundreds of channels the DishNetwork offers.
