A hobby astronomer points his telescope

A hobby astronomer points his telescope at the yello disk of the rising sun as he observes the transit of planet Venus in Ziegenhain near Jena, eastern Germany, on June 6, 2012. The event, only to be seen again in 105 years, began shortly after 2200 GMT on Tuesday, visible first from the Pacific and north and central Americas as a small black dot trailing across the solar surface.
