    Wow, that's incredible! I never would have imagined that one could see the transit of Venus like that with a camera lens (and not telescopes).

    When it first came up you could actually see it with the naked eye.
    as a little black dot. 1/60th of a degree wide. 1/30th the apparent size of the sun.
