Transit of Venus from beginning to end

All of the pictures I took of the transit of Venus viewing it the Solarscope.  I got pictures from first contact through total ingress and more than halfway across the sun.  We started at the Keck Obsevatory Headquaters  in Waimea, and ended at our hotel in Keauhou.

Final egress, Venus leaving the surface of the sun was obscured by clouds.

At least it made a beautiful sunset.

We even made the newspaper on the Big Island, the West Hawaii Today

Very nicely done. We got clouded in so I've been dependent on the web for images. Thanks for helping. :)
