Venus Transit - 2012

Hopefully you were one of the lucky ones to remember that the Venus Transit was happening last night.  This event happens in pairs that are 8 years apart; so the last one occurred in 2004.  The next one will not occur for another 105 years, so basically in most of our lifetimes we won't see it again.

I set my alarm on my phone, had my tripod set up outside and was ready for this rare event at 6:10pm EST.  These are some of my favorite shots with my 500mm lens and 300mm lens.  All I can say is AWESOME!
