Venus Transit, June 5, 2012 from flickr user AstonCameron

While I personally missed the transit of Venus as it made its way across the sun -- and won't do so again for over 100 years -- this stunning photo shows the planet of Venus (our planetary neighbor) as it traverses the sun. A very cool bit of showiness from the astrological heavens yesterday.
