Viewing Venus transit

June 5th of this year, Venus made it’s last transit of our lifetime (assuming you won’t live past 200). This event was viewed at our headquarters by using binoculars, reversed from normal viewing direction, and a piece of plain white paper. While this method has some drawbacks, the simplicity makes it a perfect solution for most folks. The advantage to using binoculars is that a large group of folks can view the transit at the same time, sharing the once in a lifetime experience with all present.
Here is a picture we took of the passing as it had just begun on June 5th of 2012.
