Venus Imagery 2012 - Spring Evening Elongation.

By Damian Peach.

This series of images shows Venus as a very narrow crescent approaching its transit across the Sun on June 5-6th.

Venus, June 3rd, 2012. The visible crescent which is showing considerable cusp extensions due to Venus being only 3.8 from the Sun and nearing its transit across the face of the Sun on June 5th. At right is a photo showing me imaging the planet during daylight.
