The 2012 Transit of Venus occurred on June 5th and 6th. At Lowell Observatory, Paolo Tanga and Bill Sheehan observed the transit as part of a worldwide effort: The Venus Twilight Experiment. The pair had two of the experiment's nine chronographs and successfully observed the aureole.
For best results, enjoy with external speakers or headphones.
