Transit of Venus on film time lapse

USC Dornsife astronomer Edward Rhodes and his students captured images of the transit of Venus across the sun at Mt. Wilson Observatory's 60-foot solar tower. Since the sun set before the transit was complete at Mt. Wilson, the dots which are Venus in this composite image do not span across the entire sun. Composite by Jie Gu.
