Transit of Venus from the Bayou, Louisiana!

Images of the sun as the planet Venus crosses in between us and the sun! Taken with my Canon Powershot digital camera and sun-gazing filter, as I sat atop a levee overlooking the Mississippi river in Baton Rouge, LA. Venus can be seen as a dark dot in the upper right corner of the sun. The other dark spots on the sun, I learned from an LSU Physics and Astronomy student who sat next to me during the event, are sun spots, where the sun is ultra-active! Yes, the sun has spots and blemishes too!
