Recently there was a lot of hype about the solar eclipse and then Venus crossing in front of the sun. I wish I had some of those special eclipse glasses or even miller welders masks (I heard those work great for it), but I don't have either. I'd planned to try making one of those pinhole viewers or other things I saw online for indirect viewing for the eclipse, but then when the day came I completely forgot the whole thing! Then when Venus was crossing the sun it was way too cloudy to even see the sun, but at least I was able to watch some online. I know it's not really that huge of a deal, but since the Venus thing won't happen again in my lifetime I figured I should at least check it out lol.
