Venus before the transit

As Venus nears her transit of the Sun today, we get a rare view of the planet as a ring of light. Here's one photo, from Rob of Liverpool, UK:
Pretty spectacular! You can see more photos from other parts of the world on the SpaceWeather.com website today.

Enjoy the transit, wherever you may be.
