a good couple of weeks for the sun

Just a few weeks after the partial eclipse, we get the last transit of Venus for another hundred years or so. Seeing that it was definitely my last chance for one, I got my telescope out of the garage for the first time in quite a few years, attached a solar filter, and caught the sun pretty much mid-transit. On a lark, I decided to see what would happen if I held my phone up to the eyepiece and tried snapping a picture. This is the result. 
It wasn't all that long ago (in geologic time, at least) when it would have taken an elaborate astrophotography rig to get a shot like this. We truly live in the future.
