The Sun Sets on the 2012 Transit of Venus
The last of the last transit of Venus I will likely ever see considering the next one is in the year 2117. I hope everyone got to get out and enjoy this rare show!
Image Notes: the large amount of low haze and clouds added with smoke from area fires really shows up here. Besides the very warm color, note how there is a bit of distortion introduced from solar heating fringing effects as well. Later on for comparison I will post one from when the sun was still higher in the sky and the distortion was lower.
