The 2012 Transit of Venus from Sully Plantation in Virginia
The clouds over Chantilly, Virginia cleared for a brief moment, just as the transit was beginning. This duration was long enough for me to capture the teardrop effect, but then the clouds thickened and the Sun disappeared. I wish that I could have had more time to adjust focus and get a clear line-of-sight, but at least I saw it for myself, and entertained a crowd of 30-some spectators.
