Transit of Venus, taken in New York City, June 5, 2012.  I was on extended assignment and didnt have my big scopes or camera, so I took this with a small handheld camera through my binoculars, which were covered by a solar filter.  I have some somewhat better photos from the 2004 transit.  Transits come in pairs separated by long gaps, so the next transit will not occur until 2117. Chrysler Building at dusk, May 2012.  Maybe the only camera phone photo Ive posted on my site, but (for me) it captures a mood.  And the street light hanging over the scene sort of brought to mind a Martian walker from "War of the Worlds."
