In the past month I have been lucky to be in the right place at the right time to witness two rare cosmic events. A few weeks ago, from Utsunomiya Japan I was able to watch the solar eclipse ring of fire. And today from Handa City Japan I was able to see the transit of Venus.
The transit of venus started at 7am and lasted till about 1:30pm. During lunch I went to a park near where I work and tried to take a photo of Venus.
As you can see, the photo was epic fail. This was taken through look-at-sun glasses, but venus was to small to be seen by the camera.
