Transit of Venus, June 8th 2004
The weather kept us from watching the 2012 transit from the Netherlands, so I dug up an oldie!
That early summer holiday in France, June 8th was very special. We and many of the other campers watched venus cross the sun through my solar filtered telescope. This picture was taken through the eyepiece.
I treasure this day, just like the 2006 Solar Eclipse in Turkey!
next transit of Venus: December 2117 :)
Beautiful HD footage of 2012's transit in various wavelenghts:
