Venus Transit - June 8th, 2004:

On the early morning hours of June 8th, 2004, about 50 amateurs and public set up their solar telescopes at the AAAP's Nicholas E Wagman observatoy to witness a rare transit of Venus.
Using my solar and video equipment, I gave a 'live' video presentation for the group.
