The 2012 transit is over - I'm sure there are many fine images and movies of it. I imagine Capt Cook would be astonished at the modern technology we applied to this event compared to his trip to Tahiti. But one thing hasn't changed: there's still weather to contend with. Here in the Schenectady area, we had solid overcast skies all day, with just a bit of a break around 5:00 PM. This is what that break looked like. Fortunately, I had two nice openings just as it began and just as the sun was about to sink below the horizon.
A group of photobloggers post a photo of their skies each Friday - it's called Skywatch Friday. Click the link to see photos from round the world.
