Mercure passes in front of the sun
|[Note Guidelines] アーティストからのコメント|
|This picture was taken last may 9th, when a rare astronomical ephemeris occured about mercure passing in front of the sun. |
Mercure is the small dot at the bottom left of the big solar circle. Another bigger dot in the middle in an ordinary sunspot.
This photo was taken without using any filter, except the default UV filter wich is included in all lenses. Many photographers said to me this is not possible, but it did because the photo was taken in Biskra (saharian region) during a powerful sandstorm.
It is in this sense that I think this photo have its place on Treklens (I hesitate to trekEarth.com) since it provides the following information :we can take a picture of the sun without a filter during a sandstorm in saharian region like Biskra (Algeria))
Be caution ! Never look directly into the camera ocular !!! I've used the LCD screen of my Canon EOS D600 to do it.
P.P : exposition. Framing. Text.
