Transit of Venus 6.5.12

I had a pair of paper eclipse glasses, so I used Scotch tape to connect them to the lens on my digital camera. I mounted the camera on a tripod, then zoomed in to the sun. I used the manual setting and used the camera’s smallest aperture. Afterward, I cropped the photo. This is the result. – Jack

    Wahoo! Awesome. This time, I didn’t have much luck with my solar glasses/camera lens trick. So glad it worked for you! Did you see the crew set up on the grass in Safeway’s parking lot? Now THAT was a great set up!
