The 2004 Venus Transit - Lyon Township Community Park

On rare occasions, Venus passes between the Earth and the Sun. During the twenty-first century, it will happen twice, once in the year 2004, and once in the year 2012. Such events are called Venus Transits.

Many Lowbrows observed the most recent Venus Transit, which took place on the morning of June 8, 2004. A few gathered at Lyon Township Community Park in New Hudson, Michigan.

The following photographs were taken that morning.
