Strange Transit - A so-called "ballon captif", a french invention from the times of the Montgolfieres and nowadays mostly produced and distributed by the french company Aerophile. Hamburg owns the British version of this balloon named "Hi Flyer" and I combined two pictures of it with my own false color photography of the Transit of Venus on the 8th of June 2004. The next transit will be on the sixth of June, 2012, and after this day Venus won't be seen passing in front of the sun until December 2117.
