Venus on the Sun

From Super Moonlight to Venus trailing across the sun - what a year it has been in our sky. We started out in the West Bottoms shooting down 12th Street then south of 12th to the rail yard then to a hill on Roe and up north to the side of Kansas Avenue following Venus on her trail across the sun.

The colors changed as we went even though we used the same filters. Even the sun spots (pimples on the face of the sun) changed as we watched.
By this time we were "baked" but felt a real need to see this to it's completion -
And that is when this beautiful storm at the bottom of the sun showed up - just the unique inspiration we needed to keep watching.
This one was taken just over the hill from our house and then . . .

the traverse of venus across the sun was gone for our lifetime. Mother Nature again - amazed me!
