Transit of Venus, 2012 Projection Method 2

Transit of Venus, 2012 Projection Method 2

Our sun filter broke, so my Father showed me how to use the projection method to see the transit. The giant lit circle is the SUN! The smaller dark spot near the edge is Venus, making its transit across the sun. If you look closely, you can see sunspots in the middle!
