Venus Transit Of The Sun

Shown above is the June 8, 2004, transit of Venus across the face of the sun (photo by Jim Tiller, Daytona Beach News-Journal/AP). This week's transit on the 5th and 6th was the last time this phenomena will occur for over a century, with the next transit during 2117. So, if you missed it, you missed it. David Blanchard has posted several of his photos of this week's transit, as viewed from northern Arizona. There is a link to his blog to the right.
