Transit of Venus

Scottsbluff, Nebraska - June 05, 2012

We tried to photograph the transit of Venus today, but cloud cover kept thwarting our efforts. We did get a few brief moments (very brief) wheren it was visible through a layer of cirrus clouds. I did manage to get one quick shot in. Venus looks like a small circle, almost resembling a sun spot on the right side of the sun.
 
I'm glad I was able to at least get some kind of an image because this won't happen again until the year 2117.
 
I don't think I'll be around for that one.
