Transits

posted by James Heflin

After learning a lot about the 1769 transit of Venus via Mark Anderson's fine book The Day the World Discovered the Sun, I enjoyed immensely the sudden sky-clearing that enabled me to run into the front yard and hastily set up binoculars and a pad of paper to view the event.

I could hardly hope to have matched one photographer, though--Thierry Legault, shooting from Queensland, Australia, captured the transit of Venus and the simultanous .9 second transit of the Hubble Space Telescope. Remarkable.
