I know the previews look like a black cat, in a coal mine, at night.  Just select one and watch the stars appear.

Green and BLUE Flash of the SUN : The Green Flash of the Sun is the result of atmospheric distortion of the Sun when it’s low on the horizon.  The photos in this gallery were taken with a focal length of 2200mm at Blind Pass between Sanibel and Captiva Islands, FL.  The atmosphere was unusually clear and allowed blue light to reach the camera.  More often particles in the atmosphere will filter out blue light and green is the last color seen in the flash.  A Blue Sun Flash is VERY rare.

The Venus Transit 2012 : The Transit of Venus as seen from Presque Isle State Park in Erie, PA. Good job to the Erie Planetarium and Edinboro University for setting this up and was nice to see alot of the members of the Erie County Mobile Observers Group. We got really lucky the skies cleared just in time. Loved seeing all of the very creative ways to view this rare and last of our lifetime celestial event.
