No, sorry, it's not the sun and Venus; it's just the full moon rising, as seen from my village in the Hills of Jerusalem.

BUT-- you can see stupendous photographs of the transit of Venus at NASA's Astronomy Picture of the Day:

Lol, I'd have said Venus had become slightly overweight!

The sky, the heaven and all celestrial bodies have always fascinated human beings. Imagine that they were there long before our history began.

This is a beautiful picture.

I guess you know we were able to see the first part of it here in California. Venus is large enough that, with ray-screening glasses, we could see it without a telescope. That is my current definition of awe.
