Venus transit close up!

Thanks to everyone who came last night – I get a kick out of every opportunity to show the wonders of the universe to folks and Venus and the Sun put on a great show. I took a bunch of photos but won’t have time to look at them until this weekend. Hopefully there will be some good ones. But no earthly view can compare with what you can see from space. The photo below was taken from the Japanese Hinode space telescope and really shows what the transit looks like from close up. Check this link if you want more information or to download a high res version of the photo.
