The Transit of Venus (Plus Sunspots!) - from Sunny Portland!

The Transit of Venus (Plus Sunspots!) - from Sunny Portland!

We certainly encountered our fair share of overcast and at times rainy weather on our trip. Although the skies were cloudy when we all arrived in Portland, they cleared in time for the Transit of Venus. Luckily, one of our participants brought along some special filters he shared with the group that allowed us to view and photograph this rare celestial event. The two other dark spots, below Venus, are sunspots.
