Staring straight at the sun

Late year we had some interesting things going on up in the sky, I have a camera...

I have welding glass....

I wonder what would happen if I stuck welding glass in front of the lens and shot a picture?


 You get the partial solar eclipse (please note we did not get much of an eclipse from Northern, Minnesota.  But for those of you who are curious this was taken on Sunday, ‎May ‎20, ‎2012, ‏‎7:28:04 PM.

Also we got to see the transit of Venus on ‎Tuesday, ‎June ‎05, ‎2012, ‏‎5:32:48 PM.  Once again this involved sticking welding glass over the lens of the camera.

So now you know, welding glass is where its at, on a side not, it is very hard to aim a camera when you have welding glass over the lens, pretty much comes down to point and pray.
