On rare occasions, the planet Venus can pass directly between the Earth and Sun, creating a miniature eclipse, called a transit. Venus was caught in the act on June 8, 2004 in this telescopic image that looks out over the Atlantic Ocean from the lighthouse on Tybee Island, Georgia. Wispy early-morning clouds create a veil over the face of the Sun as Venus slowly moved across the solar disk.
