Venus passed between the Earth and Sun shortly after 5 pm in Oklahoma June 5th, 2012. It only happens every 105 years, so the next time won't be until 2117. I shot this with a Sony XDCam on filter 4 with the doubler on and 1/2000th second shutter speed. I also had a polarizing filter on the lens just for the density. I set the iris between f16 and closed (in fact the display showed a 'C' for closed). Then, I darkened it even more in Adobe Premiere CS5.
