Transit of Venus Viewing

Members of the Astronomical Society of South Australia set up about a dozen telescopes in the City as a service to the general public to view the Transit of Venus. When I arrived the sun was obscured by cloud, but thankfully the sky cleared and I got a great view.

ABC Wednesdays - P for Port Festival

Port Adelaide is rich in history and it came alive at the Port Festival last October; stories of the past were told by images projected on many of the buildings.

This image is of a scene in 1904 with with ships of the day on the river; a paddle wheel steamship and a sailing ketch.

Anzacs abroad

On Anzac Day our TV stations covered events here and overseas; one being the service at the Australian National Memorial at Villers-Bretonneux in France.

Visiting here and other places in and around Amiens two years ago, gave us a true apprection of the contribution and sacrifices made by the Australian forces during the war in this part of the world.

Dawn Service at Henley

Yesterday morning I attended the Anzac Day dawn service at Henley Beach. I have been going to these services for about 15 years; playing in the Henley and Grange Concert Band. It is gratifying to observe that a growing number of people are attending; a time to remember and honour the sacrifices of our servicemen and women.
