At this point, Venus is completely in front of the Sun.

At a certain point, because of the atmosphere of Venus, there’s a kind of teardrop shape as it completely enters the Sun – this is at that moment.
This image is from the start of the Transit. More images soon.

While trying out some stuff tonight I noticed that Io would be transiting Jupiter tonight and so I set up to capture it. You can see Io in front of Jupiter while it’s shadow creates an eclipse on the cloud tops of the planet. Very cool. I also had a couple visitors this evening who enjoyed seeing Io emerge from in front of Jupiter while its shadow continued across.

I stayed up late enough last night that Jupiter got above my roofline for me to image and I happened to catch the Ganymede transit as it begin. Visually, I could make out the shadow more clearly than the moon and the camera was able to capture it as well.
