This image of the Venus transit is one I took on Tuesday, June 8th, 2004, at 08:15am. Viewed through my Skywatcher 114mm Reflecting Telescope the image was projected onto a large white board then photographed.
Today there is another Venus transit but this time, it will be a once in a lifetime opportunity for most of you. Not visible again until 2117 this is a rare occasion that I suggest all of you try to take the time to witness.
I just hope this cloud cover disappears by 5pm.
