Tranit of Venus.... 8th June 2004

8th June 2004


I captured this photo using a Canon EOS 1000, 35mm SLR camera.

I was sitting in a camping tent, with the 60mm refractor poking out of the tent flaps.

This seemed the best way to capture some contrast in my solar projection.


Sun projection method
(the safest way to view the Sun)

Wasn't sure if I could view the transit, the early morning cloud cover was considerable.

Luckily about 9.00am it cleared up nicely....blue skies from that moment on....beautiful transit.

Nearby.. a lone dog howls..

The Full Mackerel Moon will be upon us on Monday,  nearby I can hear a dog practicing its lunar howling! Up above, the slow moving clouds...
