Venus and the Sun

Aidan Waters-Umfleet and his dad went out to Grand Haven on Tuesday night to see the transit of Venus across the sun. Aidan’s telescope has a special filter on it that let him look right at the sun. We won’t see this again for another 105 years!
See that peppercorn on the egg yolk? That’s Venus.
Do you see the smaller spots?  Those are sun spots.
Thank you Dr. Umfleet and Aiden!  This is an amazing photo!
