Transit of Venus


Captured this image of the transit of Venus today across the sun just before sunset.     “For the last time in 105 years, Earthlings and astronauts watched the planet Venus creep across the surface of the sun during a nearly seven-hour transit.” <Alan Boyle>

I took this at 7:04 PM Sedona, AZ time with my Nikon D7000 using a neutral density filter on a 300mm lens; f40 1/8000 (-5)
