June 5, 2012 Transit of Venus: Huge Photo Gallery, High-Res Images

The weather didn't look good initially, with the sky dominated by spotty clouds with only small breaks. Fortunately, come transit time, the clouds started to break up, allowing for some amazing photos of this last such event for 105 years. Unfortunately, living in the Eastern Time Zone, I wasn't privy to the whole event, withthe Sun setting about 3 hours into the transit. Still, the event was spellbinding and not worth missing for the world. Hopefully, you got a chance to observe the transit for yourself but, if not, enjoy the gallery.

Humble Requests:

If you found this informative (or at least entertaining), help me pay my bills and check out my Examiner pages for space news, cleveland photography, national photography, and astronomy for more great stuff.
If you think this was cool, why not tell a friend?
