When Venus Rises w the Sun Image Credit & Copyright: Emil Ivanov This dramatic telephoto view across the Black Sea on June 6 finds Venus rising w the Sun, the planet in silhouette against a ruddy & ragged solar disk. Of course, the reddened light is due 2 scattering in planet Earth's atmosphere & the rare transit of Venus didn't influence the strangely shaped & distorted Sun. In fact, seeing the Sun in the shape of an Etruscan Vase is relatively common, especially compared 2 Venus transits.
