Venus passing the sun

The morning of June 8, 2004 the planet Venus moved in front of the sun. Since it was beautiful weather, I mounted my telescope on top of our office building in Delft and projected the image of the sun on a white sheet of paper. During the six hours of the event, we regularly paid a visit with different colleagues to take a live look.

These pictures were taken by Diederik Ellerbroek.
