Transit of Venus 2012

Transit of Venus 2012 see through a cloud
The 2012 transit of Venus, observed in Brisbane, at 1.10 pm. A beautiful veil of cloud came across at the right moment, and acted as a nice light filter

Observation point: Southern Hemisphere — Brisbane, Australia (the entire transit visible). Start of the transit 5 June 2012 22:15:43 UTC, end of the transit 6 June 2012 04:43:59 UTC. For Brisbane time (+1000 UTC), start of the transit 6 June 2012 08:15:43 EST, end of the transit 6 June 2012 14:43:59 EST.

A transit of Venus happens when the planet Venus passes directly between the Sun and the Earth and can be seen from the Earth as a small black disk moving across the solar disk. Transits of Venus are one of the rarest predictable astronomical phenomena. They occur in pairs eight years apart separated by long gaps of 121.5 years and 105.5 years. The next transit of Venus will occur in December 2117.

The previous transit was in June 2004, and the weather conditions did not allow me to see it. Today’s transit, 6 June 2012, was fully visible from the east coast of Australia and the sunny weather with occasional clouds was perfect for this extremely rare opportunity. The photos show the second half of the transit.
