Best photos of Venus passing in front of the Sun.

In case you missed it, the planet Venus passed in front of the sun this week – a very rare occurrence (when you live on earth) and one that won’t be replicated for more than another century. The event meant every astrophotographer worth their salt was out in force. This collection is NASA heavy (they have the best toys for this type of thing!), but check out a few of the amazing shots at the end of the collection too! And if you were lucky enough to shoot the event yourself, then share your shots in the comments!
