our observations of the transit from Cambridge ... (click thumbnails for full size pictures)

first and second contact ... happened rather early

[centre stage] The projected image of the sun, with Venus centre stage
[3rd contact] third contact -- Venus reaches the edge
[nearly over] it's nearly over ...
[only a sliver left] Farewell, Fantastic Venus!
[the telescope] Our thanks to Simon Anthony for the photographs (and for the title of this page!) To get the images, we used our Green Witch Solar Projector, originally purchased for viewing the 1999 eclipse .
