Transit of Venus, taken in New York City, June 5, 2012.  I was on extended assignment and didn’t 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.
