A View of Venus from Morro Bay

Morro Bay Astronomer, engineer-scientist Richard Sparks Photograph
Richard explains that the little black, hi contrast spot, is Venus passing in front of the Sun. The other spots are Sunspots (solar flares). This won't occur for again until Dec. 2117. Telescope used was a Questar 3.5 " and the camera was a Cannon SD 1200is. Indeed a once in a lifetime event.
