It's pretty interesting that they are now watching other stars for the "blips" (shadows) the orbiting planets cast on orbit.
I've done a little of that myself. Join in the search. There's a tutorial. http://www.planethunters.org/science
AnnOMaly... thanks for that link!
Here is my picture of the transit:
cool pic and vid, ozbrad & leolaia
It was raining here. :(
Awesome picture Leo! Thanks
Awsome pic how did you get it ? Just curious
You bet! I would not have missed this for anything. If it had clouded up I was ready to head up on Palomar mountain above the clouds, but that was not necessary. Here are some of my pictures of it.
We start out with a picture of Venus about a week before the transit.
