This would be my entry for the “alternative” category. It is more colourful than the other images, at least.
This is what you get if you hold a phone camera up to the eyepiece of a telescope rather incompetently, so that it’s misaligned and not very much of the Sun is visible.
I almost chucked the picture away, but if you look closely at the full-resolution attachment, Mercury is clearly visible! I’m not sure you can see it in the low-resolution version below. Taken about five minutes into the transit.
