Woo hoo. Managed to get an okay picture of the transition of Venus across the sun. Sight intact. 🙂
I’m glad your site is still intact, I still have a strange glow in my vision every time I close my eyes 🙂 And I didn’t even look directly at the sun( okay, maybe once on accident). The photo’s I got could be considered ok… yours is pretty spiffy! Thanks for sharing 🙂
Thanks… I have a middle of the range camera body and a couple of fairly old lenses – I could probably do better if I upgraded the lenses. I literally had five minutes to take these so am pleased with what I’ve got, all things considered! Thanks for popping over! 🙂
Yes lovely. Now where is Flo and the cats?! 😉 Deccy x
They’re seething. Silently. And probably planning an ambush as I type.
Wow! That’s as good as what I saw on CNN. The weather here was dismal. Wet and grey, so I’ll just have to catch it when it comes round again in 117 years (did I get that right?)
Yup. Sit tight.
Wow that’s a great picture! We have a break in the clouds this morning, so I’m looking up how I can see this safely too. By noon we’re back to rain!
We did it a couple of ways – we made a 6ft pinhole camera using rolled up pieces of cardboard – that worked well but the image is quite small and it’s hard to hold still. Someone also had some eclipse glasses, which is how I got the photo.
So Venus would be that small black dot in front of the sun? (I’m showing my lack of science knowledge.) 🙂 I think it’s a fantastic photo.
Cool, Amazing Photo – thanks so much for sharing! Have a Great Day:)
Thank you for the kind words about Charlotte. They mean the world to us
Nola and family
Great photo! I was also in the grey gloomy zone with no peak of the sun to see it. I miss all the fun stuff.

Oooo! I missed it! Thanks for putting the photo up! 😉 By the way, we passed on an award to you Flo!! 😀 It’s over here: http://fluffypopcorn.com/2012/06/05/%E2%98%BAthankful-tuesday/
