Transit of Venus

Transit of Venus
Amazing what you can capture with an iPhone and a telescope.

A beauty mark on the Sun–
the final event of the century.
Its procession across the star
observed by passerbys.

A sight to blind, but worth the burn–
history brands the eye.
An encore promised one hundred years
too late for minute lives.
