While I’ve seen a transit of Mercury, I’ve never seen a transit of Venus. The only chances for someone in my generation¬†to witness a Venus transit were¬†on¬†06-08-2004¬†and 06-05-2012 (yesterday). I don’t know what happen in 2004 (I guess I had a job), but I was ready this year. Unfortunately, “clouds got in my way”. I was not pleased!

So that I didn’t come away with absolutely nothing, I photographed sunspots the next day when the skies were clear.
