05-JUN-2012 DK Hein 2012


Composite of hand held photos taken at 23:40/00:44/01:44/02:44/03:24 UST Jun 5-6, 2012, at Kailua-Kona, HI.
The real path was a straight line... these weren't taken with anything sophisticated. My filter was home made.
Humanity won't see another transit like this until the year 2117!

Neat capture of the event, Dave! I wish I had enough filters to have taken a safe peek.

I am impressed! Very! We missed Venus and we missed the eclipse so it's great to know there are wonderful photogs who capture it for those of us who managed to miss these wonders!! Great job, Dave! v.
