Week 7b – Sunscript

I set up my my first blog for this SAC blogging challenge.

I included my favourite photo as the backdrop, but, no one has asked what it is.

That is a shot of the Sun, with Venus (the little perfect dot) in front of it.

It is a shot of the “Venus Transit” of 2012, using my iPhone to capture what I was seeing in the eyepiece of my telescope.

Getting that shot was a harrowing experience in itself.  Clouds rolled in just minutes before the transit.

My story was published in the Hamilton RASC newsletter ORBIT:
