#I'm Your Venus#
Starbuck [23:23] Comments: 0 []
I took an early lunch today in order to sit under a tree, hoping that the canopy of leaves would create an effect similar to a pin-hole camera, thus allowing me to catch the transit of Venus with retinas intact. And lo, due to a lucky bit of difraction through the mosaic of foilage, I was able to focus this image onto some photo-sensitive paper that I just happened to have handy...

From their from remarkably-similar photographs, it looks like the boffins at the BBC website were using a similar method. Cheapskates.
