      Great shot, Tim. First time I've seen it and I saw it here.

      Great catch Tim! Too hazy here, so I had to watch it via an internet link through NASA.

      Very good. I have seen some article about Venus on Wikipedia, but didn't spend time to read it. I should have! I have the ND1000 filter with me.

      Wow, amazing capture and image! Awesome sunspots as well :) I also managed to capture some photos of this during sunset. Not the best but I tried :D It was a spectacular sight!
