The Transit of Venus

June 5th, 2012 marked our last chance as currently living Earthlings to witness Venus pass over the sun. So naturally when I learned this was happening I had to make a dash to the Adler Planetarium to see it up close and personal. Totally worth the hour wait, even for just a few seconds of telescope time.
