Venus Transit Photos, 5 June 2012

Two pics from the early phase of the 5 June 2012 transit of Venus across the solar disk.

Pictures taken at Indianola, MS.  First photo was 22:11 UTC (5:11 pm local).  Second photo was 22:31 UTC (5:31 pm local).  Optical equipment was Brunton binoculars with one side capped, projected onto white copy paper.  Venus is the black dot in the lower right corner.  Four sunspots were visible but didn't show well in the photos. Scattered and building thundershowers prohibited further photography.
