This sad message was received from BAA member John Thorpe in Perth, Western Australia: We are St Hildas Astronomical Society in Mosman Park near Perth in Western Australia. We had hoped to send our pictures of the Transit of Venus. Alas, the Perth weather decided to pick June 6 as a good date to start our winter and we had cloud and rain for the entire duration. All we can offer is a picture which perhaps expresses our frustration, and shows how we had hoped to observe, with our Astroscan telescope and a whiteboard. Best wishes Mr John Thorpe.
