Transit of Venus 8th of June 2004
It's been a while since a put a post on here, thought it time to remedy that.
Whilst looking through my astronomy logbook I found this picture of the Venus transit back in 2004.
This photo was taken in our back garden. The day started badly, with cloud cover looking to spoil the event of a lifetime.
Luckily about 9.00am it cleared up and we had beautiful blue skies for the remainder of the transit.
This photo was taken with a Canon EOS1000 on something called "film emulsion"
Some post imaging has been done to the picture, in other words I fiddled with the contrast
