Venus Transit 2004

For the first time since December 6,1882, Venus will glide across (transit) the face of the Sun on June 8, 2004. I observe this one-lifetime event with my friend at my observatory. Next transit of Venus will be on 5-6 June 2012 but will be no visible from my location. Here are images from this event.

This image shown complete transit. Venus was enter from left side (east) at 5:20 UT and exit from the Sun disc at 11:23 UT. Image is obtained through a Celestron refractor 102mm/f5 and Vivatar 2x teleconverter (Fl 1000mm) on Canon EOS 300D (Mylar filter, 1/60 sec., 400ASA ).
