Transit LIVE!

On Tuesday 8th June 2004 we used a Coronado Helios I solar telescope to view the transit. The image to the right was taken by Tim O'Brien and Anthony Holloway at 11:24 BST

We also have a page of still images taken throughout the morning at the Observatory.

Did you see the 'black drop' effect? Not many people seem to have observed it. Let us know if you did or didn't see the 'black drop' effect by sending an email with details of your telescope/camera/filter/observing location to slowe (at)
