The Transit of Venus - with no clouds!

I was up in good time this morning - 04.20!  Opened the curtains.  Just like for the street party in our road - totally cloudy.  The only difference was that today it was not pouring down.  So along with 2.2 million others I watched the live feed from NASA Edge.  A great view of the Sun and Venus from above the clouds in Hawaii. Here is the view of the Sun at sunrise for the south coast, showing Venus and many sunspots. 
Near to the end of the transit - viewed from Mauna Loa - with thanks to NASA EDGE
