Venus Transit by Alex Conu

"Transits of Venus are among the rarest of predictable astronomical phenomena.

They occur in a pattern that generally repeats every 243 years, with pairs of transits eight years apart separated by long gaps of 121.5 years and 105.5 years.

Being such a rare event, on each occasion observing campaigns are organized across the world. In 2012, after studying the weather forecast for many days in a row, I decided to photograph the transit from the shore of the Black Sea, near Eforie Sud.

Choosing this place was a very good decision. The weather was great and I had the opportunity to get this image of the event.”
