You really get a good perspective of how close Venus is to the sun.

Nice pic, O.P.

Great thread with some good input from other posters !

In a more serious post though, the images are amazing.

I just heard something on the live feed that is interesting though. Venus will not be in the west after it transits. Does this mean that we will no longer see venus in the evening, and that it will become the morning star.

Lucifer rising perhaps

Yes, In a few days time Venus will appear just before Sunrise as the Morning Star.

Thanks for the links to the live streams.
I'm enjoying the comentary at Live Stream

I've added the links to the thread: I’ve held a planet’s shadow in my hand. How you can too.

Don't miss your chance to hold the shadow of Venus in your hand.

Webcams are great but go outside and enjoy the experience if you can.

=) Enjoy!

Amazing pics!

But how long until someone posts them as an alien spaceship flying near the sun to refuel?
