Tranit of Venus.... 8th June 2004

8th June 2004

I captured this photo using a Canon EOS 1000, 35mm SLR camera.

I was sitting in a camping tent, with the 60mm refractor poking out of the tent flaps.

This seemed the best way to capture some contrast in my solar projection.

Wasn't sure if I could view the transit, the early morning cloud cover was considerable.

Luckily about 9.00am it cleared up skies from that moment on....beautiful transit.
