■ THE VENUS TRANSIT : “Astronomy is awesome, so when I got this assignment I was excited. The image itself is rather simple but photographing it wasn’t. Turns out that my big fancy schmancy Canon camera was too big to put up to the eyepiece of the telescope. So I used my phone. At first I still wasn’t sure if I was going to get the shot because just getting the sun to be in the picture required some tricky angling of the phone. Then when I found the proper angle I had to hold very still and stop breathing just to reduce camera vibration.
