Finally the disc appeared around 6:11

In each closeup (see the full images) a small notch can be seen in the limb of the Sun, on the right -- just below center; that would be Venus. It finally cleared the Sun's disk by about 6:25.
Images of the Sun were taken using a Fuji FinePix S5000 with 22x zoom. Settings: ISO 200, f/9, 1/250s; the filter was two sheets of mirror window film -- about 4 magnitudes of attenuation.
