I took a dinner break at the polls around the time when the sun was dodging clouds over central Iowa. About a half-hour in, I had a few minutes of clear sun. Then I realized that maybe I could get something on the cell camera. Not great, but enough to remember the day.
About an hour into the transit, I focused binoculars onto a piece of paper:
Venus is the small dot in the lower left, just above the cloud drifting in.
About a half hour later, the sun emerged and I got three images in short succession:
My first solar eclipse was an 85% partial in 1970. My first-ever sighting of Mercury in 1974 was in a transit. Twenty years after that, I viewed an annular eclipse from southern Michigan. Today I added Venus. Another viewing checked off my list.
