Venus Transit

On June 5, 2012 the Pontchartrain Astronomy Society (PAS) gathered at the lake front in Kenner to view the Venus Transit.    There were about 12 telescopes set up.

That is my daughter's and my telescopes under the blue canopy.
We had a great time and the weather largely cooperated.

And then we lost the sun to the clouds, but it made a brief appearance before dipping below the horizon.
