Transit of Venus

A special friend of the camera club I belong to also belongs to an Astronomy Club… and he encouraged us to attend a viewing with special lenses to see venus making its path in front of the sun.

I got a few nice images and I thought I would share with you all first of all what the image looked like and secondly share with you a couple of images i creatively put together to remember the event.

The images were taken in Port Dalhousie in St. Catharines Ontario Canada

This Astrological Event wont happen again for another 150 years

Enjoy :)
