    Did this one by placing a white paper in front of the telescope... worked pretty damn good. You can see some of the sun spots as well.

    Well folks, thats it. Most of us will see dozens of solar and lunar eclipses i our lives, but for a venus transit, the average is one, and this has been our one transit to witness. Whens the next one? Well, thats going to happen in 2117. By then it's most likely that most of us will be dead unless some live off of the medicine of science. Maybe if a space probe goes to another star and takes photos of a planet transiting then we can see that, but not with our own sun again in our own lives. As far as I know, mercury is a lot smaller and it's transits are often hard to view because it's so close to the sun and so bright.
