Timeshare Travel #TravelTuesday – Venus Transits the Sun
Our #TravelTuesday photo is from the 2004 transit, taken from Flager Beach Pier in Florida. You can see the small dot of Venus near the right rim of the sun.
An interesting bit of trivia: In the era of the telescope, there's been 258 Total Solar Eclipses, but only eight Venus Transits, including today's. (Neil deGrasse Tyson).
