Transit of Venus over Amman, Jordan – June 6, 2012

In a rare astronomical event that will not happen again for the next 105 years, Venus has passed, this morning, across the Sun from Earth. The transit window for Amman was 07:37 AM at a Sun alt. of 25° to 07:55 AM at a Sun alt. of 28°. Inspired by @Brendano, I have prepared the following setup with the tremendous help of @ghadeerali:
