    Someone needs to make a video of transit of venus for 10 hours

    beautiful event!

    With this movement the initiation of the final phases of the Mayan & Asian calendars began. In many ways I wish it wasn’t true, but now as we wait for the full Lunar eclipse of the Sun, and the alignments with the center of our Galaxy, we are left only to reflect on that which was & that which may never be. God Bless all that read this, may you have lived a life worthy of its journey.

    Actually it is the result of gravitational lensing, not the camera.

    Just like Einstein said 1 hundred years earlier.

  13. Da1UHideFrom says:

    The gravity of the planet causes light to bend around it, meaning the light directly behind the planet is visible.

    How come the planet looks transparent??

  15. Batmanageable says:

    The reason Venus is transparent. : It’s just quantum efficiency hysteresis – the CCD’s response to light depends on previous exposures, the end effect of which is a bit of ghosting which is quite noticeable here because of the sudden and drastic change from “bright” pixels to “dark” pixels due to Venus. This occurs due to back side charge accumulation

    Actually it does through binary fission
