VENUS TRANSIT 2012

As you all probably know, the planet Venus made a transit across the sun this past week.  I am fortunate to have two amateur astronomers in my office, and they took photos.  One of them, Attorney Norman Van Treeck, also set up viewing contraptions across the street at St. Andrew’s School so the kids could witness this event.  The above photo is one that Norman took at home with his sophisticated equipment.  Note Venus transiting at the top right of the photo, and the other dark marks are sunspots. Photos below show Norman and the kids at St. Adnrew’s watching the transit.
