Solar Transit | It Happened Again

Five days ago I received a notice that the space station would transit across the face of the Sun for my location. I wrote about a recent transit on 18 August 2016. I must be living right. The sky was clear again this time.

First view is in real time. Don’t blink. Duration of the transit is 0.94s. Second view is slowed to 10% of real time. For both, I suggest full screen. You might not see it on a phone or tablet.

 

What’s up for the rest of the month? This JPL video will tell you of some highlights.

  1. Hi Jim, again what a wonderful capture! You are making this look easy (which it is not)! I could imagine you are glued to your TV tonight (go Cubs). Where did you take your header photo. It looks very much like the mountains around here. Bob
