This year, on this day (if you have clear skies) you get to experience something that won't happen till 2117! Every hundred or so years venus goes in front of the sun and can be seen with a big camera lens (about 300 mm) or with a telescope. I highly suggest that you do whatever you have at hand to capture a sight of the eclipse (MAY be visible with human eye) because it will only happen once in our lives! Venus will certainly be bigger and blacker then the shun spots as it moves across the sun, starting at 3 PM in the West, (look up online your location if you want to view it). I will be capturing this with a 300 mm lens on my DSLR with the eclipse viewer in front of the lens (actually works!!!) and if I'm lucky the T- adaptor will get here early so I can get even closer pictures with my telescope. If you can't see it just go to www.slooh.com to see it where they will be filming it with their telescopes. Good luck with capturing this once in a lifetime event! I will be posting pics as soon as it starts.
