Venus transit animation with solar flare
Flickr doesn't like animated GIFs too much, so in the comment below I've linked to the one posted on my blog. Please give it a moment to load, it's a 4.5 MB GIF.
Check out the enormous flare erupting in the last frame!
Set up on my front porch (facing west), and was visited by 8 random passers-by asking to have a look. Gotta love that the general world is interested in science!
This is approx 20 frames of data from 6:05pm to 7:15pm ET from Toronto, Canada. The scope is a Lunt LS60Ha and the camera is a DMK21AU618.
More photos and videos to come when I have time to process.
Thanks Venus, see ya in 2117!
