Come on everybody! Once in a lifetime pin. You still have time! It takes 10 minutes to put your submission together and send it to Aaron. You didn't even have to see it as Dino and Nick proved. So far I think Dino, Chuck, Jim, Nick and myself have submitted.

I just sent in my logs for the Venus Transit Program. This is the last day to do it and it's not particularly difficult at all. I'd encourage any of you that haven't already to give it a look:

I used one of Chuck Jagow's images for the calculation of the Astronomical Unit. (Specifically the one with the backdrop effect)
