Internet feeds of the Venus transit

If you live somewhere where you can see part or all of the transit, -I hope the clouds stay away for you.  REMEMBER NOT TO LOOK DIRECTLY AT THE SUN.
If you’re on the wrong part of the planet (like me) or unlucky with the weather, here’s some places to watch it live on the Internet for free.
Slooh.com will be broadcasting ten feeds of the Venus transit live from solar telescopes in Australia, Japan, New Zealand, Hawaii, Norway, Arizona, and New Mexico: http://events.slooh.com/
