Transit of Venus: Photos

Photography, Science Tech

Venus Transit

The 2012 Venus transit is over! (At least for the eastern U.S.) It had started out cloudy, and ended cloudy, but I was able to observe it through cloud breaks. The entire family observed. It was very exciting to see Venus as it just touched the sun’s limb; I was looking through the telescope at the time. It was really cool. God’s creation is beautiful! Below: First Contact (when Venus’s edge first touches the sun’s edge, seen at right a bit past 2 o’clock)
