Here is the 'transit of venus' in front of the sun...from Ohio. I captured this with my 40 dollar point and shoot and a #9 welding glass over the course of 3 hours. Top to bottom, left to right...I drove to an adjacent city for the last couple of pics because the sun was setting.

That's a really good series of pics you got. I'd be really proud of them!! :)

I didn't know anything about this but it's pretty amazing, especially when you consider that there have only been seven transits of Venus since the telescope was invented in 1610. (I read that on t'internet, I'm not clever enough to know it! :redface::fu:)

Thanks for sharing 'em. :thumbsup:

<EDIT> Just realised that the transit of Venus was in 2012 and the OP was about the partial eclipse. No wonder I hadn't heard about the transit in the last couple of weeks! :doh:</EDIT>
