The Deep Blue Sea
I can only share a little snippet of this story. I hope you can visit here for the big picture.
I arrived at Mount Wilson Observatory the day before the transit of Venus and had just enough time to get everything unpacked and set up for a test run. I took two streams of video to make sure the computer and cameras were all happy and talking to each other. I forgot about these files in the excitement of June 5th. Looking back through the files while archiving the 200 gigabytes of data from my trip, the conditions on June 4th were way better than the following day… in fact, it is some of the best solar seeing I’ve experienced in some time.
Apologies in advance that the linked image is so big… but I couldn’t bear to reduce it!
