On June 8th, Pastor Tom Cordock from Lenox Laser brought his telescopes and binoculars equipped with special optics to view the Venus transit over the sun. He was able to capture some magnificent photos of this historic event which are shown at the bottom right. This special event last happened in 1882 and British astronomer Jeremiah Horrocks recorded the first transit of Venus across the sun in 1639. You will have to wait until June 6, 2012 to see this again.
