Venus Transit

I might have taken the "Big Sky" challenge a little too far.  This was shot June 5th, of the transit of Venus across the face of the sun.  The largest dot is Venus (top right).  The other specks are sunspots.  I shot the image with my 500mm with a 1.4X teleconverter.  A welding filter was used to protect the camera and my eyes.   - John Anderson

  2. That should have been ...CAN'T get much bigger...
