This short video illustrates the upcoming Venus transit on June 5, 2012.
Next transit after 2012 is 2117, so you better enjoy this one...
Note that as the transit begins the Sun is already very low at only 20 degrees above the horizon.

WARNING ....
Be sure to use the proper protection when viewing the Sun.
Do Not use binoculars or telescope to view the Sun without the proper solar filter in place!

The field of view box is to illustrate the field of view using a Televue 85mm (600mm F/7) telescope with a SkyNyx 2.2 Video camera. The scope will be fitted with a Coronado 90mm (7nm) solar filter in conjunction with a 15mm right angle blocking filter 1.25" adapter.
