I have been waiting 34 years for this Transit and brought the baby telescope to Cape Hatteras North Carolina (Outer Banks) on family Vacation. CLouds cleared up with 2 hours to spare. This photo clearly demonstrates the Tear drop Phenomena at Second Contact. We are only the seventh group to witness a transit of Venus in human hisory. WOW.
