Triple Crown, Ralf; AC, VIP, and WV! Congratulations! Good job on capturing this scene!

Can this event really happen so rarely, though? I looked at some of the literature on the subject but didn't understand it. As close as Venus is to the sun, you would think transits would be commonplace.

Excellent shot Ralfo, i was hoping you would see it happen & post results. As per usual when anything like this happens (eclipses of the moon, really decent meteor shower etc) it's cloudy where i am. Congrats on VIP & AC.
