The Venus Transit Group:  standing at the truck tailgate is Bob Bush;  seated in the chair (left to right) are Colby Bush and Shelby Bush;  and I at the  telescope imaging the transit.  Out of view because she is taking this photograph is Linnie Bush.  The WARF building is in the background.  While I was imaging the transit through the main scope, members of the group and many passersby were able to view the transit through the guide scope.  There were many excited passersby that were thrilled to have seen this very rare event.
