"The fateful moment was now approaching. Enthusiasm, in some cases rising to frenzy, was manifested by the crowd surrounding the telescope...[Venus] never once seemed to lose her self-possession, in spite of the numberless telescopes levelled at her. " -1882
“If Venus only comes to time,
(And prophets say she must and shall,)
To-day will hear the tinkling chime
Of many a ringing silver dime,
For him whose optic glass supplies
The crowd with astronomic eyes,—
The Galileo of the Mall.”
The Flâneur
Boston Common, December 6, 1882, During the Transit of Venus
