Caption

On June 5, 2012, much of the world was treated to a rare transit of Venus. This sequence was taken from Phoenix, Arizona starting at 3:24 PM. The 5 shot sequence was made at 30 minute intervals spanning a time of 2 hours. 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.
