Jeremiah Horrocks was the first person to record a transit of Venus.  A stained glass window in St. Michael Church (in Hoole, England) celebrating his 1639 achievement shows Horrocks looking at a projection of the sun on a large sheet.  

Color this window with your own words of celebration, or make your own stained glass window.  For ideas of what to draw in the stained glass circle, see Things Round.   For words that could fill the stained glass banner, see Quotes.  Better yet, come up with your own images and words.
