Venus-transit 6 June 2012

Venus at the Sun's rim 6 June 2012 photographed by (c) Per Tybjerg Aldrich

I had luck with the weather on the morning of 6 June 2012 so I could observere and make photos of the last part of Venus’ transit over the Sun’s disk. The photo here was made around 6:37 a.m. Danish Summer Time (= 4:37 GMT) with a 600 mm tele. The Danish Meteorological Institute published the photo on their homepage: http://www.dmi.dk/dmi/venuspassagen_i_billeder
Now we all have to wait 105 years until the next Venus-transit and who knows how the weather will perform then…
