Get Out Of My Eighth House

We don't get to see the transit of Venus live in South Africa, unless we live on the extreme east coast of KwaZulu Natal.

But here's a shot from the live webcam at (urrgh) the CocaCola Space Science Centre in Alice Springs, Oz.
It's purple because of the em wavelength it's viewing the event in - in this case, the hydrogen calcium K line.

OK Venus? Had your moment? Now get out of my eighth house, would you?
