Transit of Venus

I was lucky enough to be able to leave work an hour early and not have cloud cover until the very end.

I loaded up Valentina, my telescope, this morning without knowing where I’d be able to set up. I ended up in a grocery store parking lot then ended up moving to a dollar store parking lot before cloud cover rolled in.

I took these photos through my telescope’s lens with my cell phone’s camera.
