This morning I had the fortune to admire from the beach of Lido di Dante (Ravenna, Italy) a spectacular sunrise with the huge AR1520 sunspot rising on an omega shaped Sun over the sea!
At sunrise of 6 June 2012 Venus passed on the disk of the Sun for the last time in this century: you can find my images and a report of this incredible event HERE!
