This series of images were taken on Tuesday June 5th, 2012.  This was a fantastic event to witness first hand as I had missed the previous transit which occured in 2004.  Venus' transit began at approximately 5:05pm CDT, and my very last image was captured at 7:48pm. CDT.  The solar image is a mosaic of 15 images, with an additional 16 images showing Venus' position every 15min after the initial egress.
