Life is crazy, busy, I know. We get so focused on daily activities that we often forget what a wondrous and amazingly large universe we live in. Occasionally, we get a glimpse of that reality and it never fails to leave us awestruck. Such was the case on June 5, when we were treated to a rare event during which we were able to see one of the two inner planets of our solar system, Venus in this case, pass in front of our Sun, an event called a transit.
Around 500 people assembled in the parking lot of the Asheville Area Chamber of Commerce to see the last transit of Venus in front of the sun for 105 years. Young and old, experienced and not, stood in lines to look through the various telescopes and binoculars club members set up. Photos by Bill Rhodes
