This is the Transit of Venus observed on 6 June 2012 from the roof top of my home in Karachi, Pakistan. A time-lapse video can be viewed at http://youtu.be/UAcVZl6Jy7w The entire sequence was photographed through almost overcast skies. The heavy cloud cover was used as a natural solar filter and no other optical filtering was used. The images presented are raw unprocessed images. Your comments would be highly appreciated.
