Venus Dances Across The Face Of Sol

That's VENUS transiting SOL our star.  I have absolutely no doubt you're aware of and waiting to watch this rare event.  June 5th into 6th, starting at sunset.  Use caution.

Please DON'T stare into the sun.  Using sunglasses won't protect your eyes either.  Use binocs or a scope and direct the image onto a piece of paper, you won't miss a thing. 

This bird crossing the path of Sol was captured 8 years ago in Indiana at the last transit.  Whew!
