Lifetime Event- Venus Transit

Venus Transit ... we have been reading and hearing this for past one week on TV, news papers and magazines ... Today was the day! The cloudy days of Bangalore had never bothered me so much as they did today. Since morning I was running in and out to my apartment balcony and up and down the terrace. I had dreamed of a huge orange sun and then the beauty spot Venus! Nah! As the Sun rose up the horizon behind the thick sheild of clouds I was okay with whatever pic. Then, I was so disappointed and hoping ... God! I just want to see it! God heard me!! And I saw ... and got okay-ish pics. I am very happy with them.
Now at 10:30AM the transit is over ... the clouds cleared up a bit :) Wicked huh? Anyway, 

Thought of adding equipment details:
At 400mm on Canon 50D with 9 f-stops+ 6 f-stops+ 3 f-stops ND filters attached.
