Silt, CO

Date/Time of photo:

June 5, 2012

Equipment:

Orion Shortube 80mm on Canon 7D with glass solar filter.

Description:

Transit of Venus during sunset over the Rocky Mountains. I drove four hours west from Boulder, Colorado to find clear skies and photograph this historical event. As the Sun approached jagged peaks down a valley on the western horizon, smoke particles blown in from a distant forest fire caused the air to turn a vivid orange color.
