June 5th, 2012: Venus Transit of the Sun

Venus Transit with the Sun
Originally uploaded by Paultyrrel
Get ready... on June 5th, last opportunity at a twice in a lifetime event, Venus passing in front of the Sun (called a transit). It happened in 2004 but after this one you'll have to wait another 105 years to see it happen again.

This photo is one I included in a Flickr gallery called Transit of Venus that highlights a few interesting pictures of past transits on Flickr.

More to come after the 5th.
