Today's Google "doodle" honors drive-ins

Today's Google doodle is a short video honoring the 79th anniversary of the first drive-in theater. Like any good film, it has rewards for those who pay attention.

A few fun things I spotted:

  • A Google doodle within the Google doodle
  • The ubiquitous Wilhelm scream
  • A little Android guy in a grass skirt on a dashboard

Missed the transit of Venus? You can still check it out on Flickr

I missed out on the transit of Venus yesterday, but with any astronomical event, Flickr's users are there to keep me covered. NASA always provides especially good views:
