Solar eclipse through welding glass

What a treat for morning tea we got to observe the moon pass in front of the sun. 4 minutes in I was pretty stoked the little camera did such a great job you can even just make out the tiny dot of Venus.  Gotta love welding glass!

Great shot Jane. What a clever idea to use the welding glass. Since I missed the eclipse, it was great to pop over here and see a snapshot

Thanks Peter. The engineers at work had it all planned out in advance and we shared several sets of glasses around. I was impressed my little camera managed such a crisp shot and even more impressed to see venus' silhouette too!
