Caption: On June 5, 2012, much of the world was treated to a rare transit of Venus. This view was taken from Phoenix, Arizona at 16:54. The dark silhouette of our sister planet is seen to be much bigger than all of the numerous sunspots. The planet was just large enough to be seen with the naked eye by people with keen vision.
